Default Jim Mora fired in Seattle

Apparently Seattle decided that Mora is less..... get it? Har har.

link

The Seahawks have fired head coach Jim Mora after just one year, FOXSports.com has learned.

It's curious that Seattle would make such a move so soon. Mora took over a 4-12 team, and this year's squad was decimated by injuries and had to endure a general manager leaving during the year.

The Seahawks finished 5-11 this year, third place in the NFC West. They finished the year on a four-game losing streak during which they failed to score more than 13 points in any game.

Seattle has already called for permission to interview other assistants. Likely candidates include Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, among others.

The Seahawks were astonishingly bad. I was actually a litte shocked how much they looked like a USFL team. His Dad, Jim Mora coached a couple of teams that could beat that team I'd bet.

Man, I would've thought they'd at least hire a new GM to make their decision.

Yet another HOU-TEX random comment: If I were a player or coach, Seattle might just be the last place I'd want to go. Right there with the Northeastern teams.

Maybe they are a real player in the Cowher sweepstakes? This seem like an odd move. I know Mora is not Lombardi, but the Seahawks weren't Packers of the 60's either.

I have a friend who knows a guy who cleans the pool of a woman who's cousin dated a dude who detailed the car of a guy who said that he knows first hand that the Seahawks actually cover Rich Kotite and are trying to get him to agree to coach the 'Hawks next year.

That's the last time I tell your friend anything in confidence.

Can't trust anyone.
