The Seattle Seahawks are tapping Leslie Frazier to serve as assistant head coach under new head coach Mike Macdonald, multiple media outlets reported Friday night.
Frazier took the 2023 season off after a six-year stint as the Buffalo Bills’ defensive coordinator.
Frazier, 64, will provide a sounding board to the 36-year-old Macdonald, now the youngest head coach in the NFL. Macdonald worked with Frazier on the Baltimore Ravens’ staff in 2016 and considers him a mentor.
Seattle hired Macdonald as its head coach earlier this week, replacing Super Bowl champion Pete Carroll, who was moved to a front-office advisory role after the 2023 season.
Frazier spent three-plus seasons as head coach of the Minnesota Vikings. After taking over on an interim basis in 2010 and holding the job for three full seasons after that, Frazier amassed a 21-32-1 record with one playoff appearance.
In Buffalo, Frazier coordinated the league’s No. 1 defense in both scoring and yardage in 2021 and the No. 2 scoring defense in both 2019 and 2022.
