With the meat of the NFL's free-agency period and the 2015 NFL Draft in the books, the Seahawks have promoted five staff members responsible for the team's talent acquisition.
Scott Fitterer and Trent Kirchner have been elevated to the role of co-director of player personnel, where the pair will work together to maintain and enhance all aspects of Seattle's roster and direct both the college scouting department and pro personnel department.
As director of college scouting from 2011-14, Fitterer was responsible for coordinating the team's scouting operation and compiling information necessary to set the team's draft board. Kirchner spent 2013-14 as the club's director of pro personnel, where he oversaw NFL free agency, the scouting of Seattle's upcoming opponents, evaluation of NFL practice squads, and assessment of other pro players in the Canadian Football League and Arena Football League.
Ed Dodds has been promoted to Seattle's senior personnel executive, where he will evaluate both college- and pro-level talent. Dodds, in his ninth season with the Seahawks, spent 2014 as a national scout.
Matt Berry, a national scout for the Seahawks last season, takes on Fitterer's role as director of college scouting and Dan Morgan fills Kirchner's shoes as director of pro personnel after assisting Kirchner in the area the past two years.
