Report: Seahawks hire Jones as D-line coach

A day after losing defensive line coach Todd Wash to Jacksonville, the Seattle Seahawks reportedly have found his replacement.

Travis Jones, who has spent the last five seasons as an assistant defensive line coach in New Orleans, has been tabbed as the man to replace Wash, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. The Seahawks are expected to announce the move today.

While Jones does not have a background with Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, he did spend two seasons on the Miami Dolphins’ staff with Dan Quinn, who earlier this month was hired as defensive coordinator to replace Gus Bradley.
