In an interview with Sports Radio 950 KJR in Seattle, linebacker K.J. Wright endorsed the Seahawks' decision to hire Ken Norton Jr. as their new defensive coordinator. Wright said he wondered if the team would turn back to a former Pete Carroll assistant when it was known that Kris Richard wouldn't return, and he said he was "very happy, very relieved" that Norton was the choice. Norton was Seattle's linebackers coach during Wright's first four seasons. Said Wright: "He’s the type of guy that can not only impact the defense, but impact the entire team because he’s just that great of a guy, that influential. So when he gets in here I believe we’ll see a big turnaround with the whole team."
