Clint Hurtt

Defensive Coordinator

College: Miami

Experience: 9 years


Clint Hurtt enters his first season as defensive coordinator after serving the previous five seasons as defensive line coach, adding the title of assistant head coach in 2018. Originally hired on March 16, 2017, Hurtt joined Seattle after two years as the Chicago Bears outside linebackers coach (2015-16) and one year as the Bears assistant defensive line coach (2014).

In 2021, Hurtt's defensive line helped the Seahawks rank second in the league allowing 3.79 yards per rush. Veteran Al Woods had one of the finest seasons of his career, helping free up Jordyn Brooks and Bobby Wagner to set the two highest single-season totals for tackles in franchise history (Brooks - 183; Wagner - 170). After missing his rookie season due to injury, second-year defensive end Darrell Taylor emerged, finishing tied for second on the team with 6.5 sacks.
