Seahawks to hire Knapp as coordinator

SEATTLE -- Greg Knapp is the new offensive coordinator for the Seahawks, the first of many moves to be made by Seattle under new coach Jim Mora.

A person familiar with the hire confirmed Wednesday that the 45-year-old Knapp will leave the Oakland Raiders to reunite with Mora, Knapp's former boss in Atlanta.

The source requested anonymity because Knapp has yet to sign a contract with the Seahawks. His contract with Oakland was to run through Jan. 13, according to Raiders coach Tom Cable.

Seattle's move comes two days after Mora held his first staff meeting as the successor to Mike Holmgren. Holmgren left the Seahawks after 10 seasons when his contract expired following Seattle's 4-12 season, its first in six years without a playoff appearance.
