Seattle Seahawks rookie Aaron Curry will have his jersey retired at E.E. Smith High School in Fayetteville, NC, where he played outside linebacker. The ceremony will take place on Friday.

Curry earned the conference defensive player of the year his senior year, and also was named to the All-Conference and All-Region team after finishing with 123 tackles in his final season at E. E. Smith.

Curry also was selected to play in the North Carolina-South Carolina Shrine Bowl as a tight end.

“I am honored to have my jersey retired,” said Curry in a prepared statement. “It serves as proof that hard work pays off. More importantly, this gives me an opportunity to get the community involved in helping E.E. Smith find success both academically and athletically.”

Former USC defensive coordinator Rocky Seto will join the Seattle Seahawks coaching staff as a defensive quality control assistant, becoming the seventh member of the Trojans staff to move to the Pacific Northwest.

Clare Farnsworth of Seahawks.com talks to defensive coordinator Gus Bradley about his experience at the Senior Bowl last week.

Former Seahawks tight ends coach Mike DeBord has been hired to coach tight ends for the Chicago Bears.

Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck talks about the changes that will be made to the offense with new offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates on board in this audio link.

  1. Now, if he would only play well enough for the next 12 years, maybe we can retire his Seahawks jersey.

  2. Dukeshire says:

    This is great – It was former coach Chuck Knox who first increased the involvement of the Seahawks’ assistant coaches in the evaluation process of college players because, as he put it, “The scouts can tell you if a guy can play. It’s the assistant coaches who can tell you if the guy can play for us.”

    The audio link for Matt Hasselbeck does not work Eric

  4. Jesko: Thanks for finding that.
    Idahoseahawksfan: I updated the link.

  5. I agree, Audible. I could care less about his pop warner stuff, I only care that he earns that insane contract that he hasn’t lived up to yet (even though he’s about 17% through it) so he can get his jersey retired by the Seattle Seahawks. After one year, he’s more Audrey Bruce (or any other bust you can name) than Junior Seau (or any other Pro Bowler you can name) and I’d like to see change in year two.

  6. The moral of the story… the Titans didn’t hardly try to beat the Seahawks IN Seattle and yet they did in week 17. Sad.

  7. How important is a jersey number? If Walt retires do Hawks retire 71? Aren’t Okung and some of the other higher-pick LTs sporting 71 jerseys? Do they care if they come to SEA to replace Walt that they might have to change their number?

  8. Dukeshire says:

    Walt’s number gets retired the second he calls it quits. Second number 2; hang it in the ring of honor. Rookies can earn their own number.

    Eric, very nice touch with the head shot. I like.

  9. Ryan would be proud of the polo (and no sweater vest).

  10. Good find on that Titan link Bobby! Thx…

  11. ElPerroGrandeIII says:

    Well this is nice, because there is zero chance that his Seahawks jersey will ever be retired (let alone to continue to be carried in the Seahawks store).
