Leslie Frazier Makes NFL Comeback: Joins Seattle Seahawks as Assistant Head Coach

After a one-year hiatus, Leslie Frazier is making a comeback to the NFL coaching scene, securing a position with the Seattle Seahawks.

The seasoned coach, who previously served as the head coach of the Vikings and the defensive coordinator for the Bills, will now take on the role of assistant head coach under the leadership of Seattle’s head coach, Mike Macdonald.

It appears that Frazier and Macdonald share a mentor-mentee relationship, with Macdonald having Frazier as a mentor. Their coaching connection dates back to their time together on the Ravens’ coaching staff in 2016. Despite Macdonald being set to become the youngest active head coach in the NFL, he is strategically bringing in Frazier as one of the most experienced defensive minds available.

While Frazier was considered for head coaching positions with the Chargers and Raiders last month, the fit as an assistant in Seattle seems more aligned with his expertise. Frazier, aged 64, brings a wealth of experience, having spent six seasons as the Bills’ defensive coordinator, where he primarily handled play-calling duties. Although his tenure with the Bills concluded after the previous season, Frazier expressed his eagerness to return to coaching for the 2024 season.

Notably, Frazier also interviewed for the defensive coordinator position with the Dolphins, but it seems the role remains vacant, signaling that Miami may have moved in a different direction. With Macdonald planning to take on play-calling responsibilities for the Seahawks, it raises speculation about whether Frazier’s hiring will also serve as an implicit appointment as the de facto defensive coordinator.

Stay tuned for more updates as the Seahawks’ coaching staff takes shape.
