Klint Kubiak would make a great OC for the Seahawks

Kubiak's lineage in the NFL is almost peerless. He learned at the knee of his father, Gary, and has also learned under Kevin Stefanski and Kyle Shanahan. Kubiak is only 36 years old, but he has one year of experience as offensive coordinator in the NFL when he served the Minnesota Vikings in that role in 2021. Prior to that, Kubiak helped make Kirk Cousins a better quarterback in Minnesota as Kubiak was the quarterbacks coach.

Kubiak also helped Russell Wilson be a little better in 2022 after Kubiak took over play-calling duties with the Denver Broncos after head coach Nathaniel Hackett had been fired. Kubiak seemed to have the talent to stream-line the offense fairly quickly and get Wilson to better understand what he needed to do.

Kubiak would likely bring a big change to what Seattle's offense looks like compared to Shane Waldron and the offense could look a lot more like what the San Francisco 49ers do with a lot of movement and moving skill position players around from play to play where a defense has to guess, for instance, where Walker might line up or Jaxon Smith-Njigba.

Under Waldron, the Seahawks offense was a little too stagnant. A system such as Kubiak might run would probably use the talent Seattle currently has much better. The only fear is that Kubiak would do too good of a job and be hired as a head coach elsewhere in a year or two.
