The NFL is a land of opportunity for players during training camp, as they go about trying to make a roster spot and earn the associated fame and fortune.
Training camp is a land of opportunity for rising coaches as well.
Organizations are permitted to take on intern coaches during training camp each summer through the Bill Walsh NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship — to give budding coaches a chance to learn from the best in the profession. The Seahawks will have four such interns in camp during the next month, so check out who those guest coaches will be:
- Lance Schulters (DB) – Born in Guyana, the safety attended Hofstra before an 11-year NFL career with five different teams, ending with the New Orleans Saints in 2008. He made the Pro Bowl in 1999 as a member of the 49ers.
- Joe Salave’a (DL) – A two-time All-Pac-10 defensive tackle at Arizona, Salave’a spent nine years in the NFL before becoming an assistant coach at San Jose State. He was born in American Somoa.
- James Jones (TE/ST) – A running back out of Florida, Jones spent 10 seasons in the NFL between 1983-92, including the last four with the Seahawks.
- Reginald Moore (WR) – In his 12th year of coaching, Moore is entering his third season as UCLA wide receivers coach. He played three seasons in the NFL following his decorated playing career at UCLA.
