Reports: Seahawks interviewing Ben Johnson, Mike Macdonald

The Seattle Seahawks will interview Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Ben Johnson and Baltimore Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald for their head coaching vacancy over the next few days, per multiple media reports on Monday.

The Seahawks will interview Johnson on Monday, followed by Macdonald on Tuesday, per the reports. Since the Lions and Ravens lost their respective conference championship games on Sunday, both coordinators are free to interview immediately.

The Washington Commanders, the only other NFL team without a head coach, are also interviewing Johnson and Macdonald over the next two days, per the reports.

Macdonald, 36, interviewed this winter with the Carolina Panthers, Atlanta Falcons, Tennessee Titans, Los Angeles Chargers and Washington Commanders. He just completed his second season as defensive coordinator.

Johnson, 37, has been on the Lions’ staff since 2019 and has served as offensive coordinator since 2022. He interviewed for the Falcons’ head coaching position, but Atlanta hired Raheem Morris last week.

Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, Panthers defensive coordinator Ejiro Evero, Las Vegas Raiders defensive coordinator Patrick Graham and New York Giants offensive coordinator Mike Kafka have also interviewed for the Seahawks’ vacancy.

Seattle fired Pete Carroll, the head coach since 2010, following a 9-8 season.
