Ex-Warrior and 49er Ulbrich joins Seahawks staff
Former University of Hawaii and recently retired San Francisco 49ers linebacker Jeff Ulbrich has joined Pete Carroll's staff in Seattle.
Ulbrich, a one-time starter with the 49ers who later became one of the 49ers' special teams' standouts, was named assistant special teams coach for the Seahawks.
Ulbrich, a star for UH in 1998-99, played part of last season with the 49ers before going on injured reserve with a concussion and later retiring.
He was drafted in the third round in 2000 by his hometown team (he was born in San Jose) and played his entire career with the 49ers.
Ulbrich was one of 18 news coaches added to Carroll's staff. Carroll left USC to become the Seahawks coach after the season.
The team confirmed Thursday that defensive coordinator Gus Bradley and defensive line coach Dan Quinn will return next season. Carroll had said Jeremy Bates is joining him from Southern Cal as his offensive coordinator.
Ken Norton Jr. is the new linebackers coach, Brian Schneider is coaching special teams, Alex Gibbs is the offensive line coach, Jedd Fisch is the quarterbacks coach, Sherman Smith is coaching running backs, Pat McPherson has tight ends and Jerry Gray is coaching defensive backs.
The Seahawks also announced the addition of wide receivers coach Kippy Brown; assistant offensive line coach Art Valero; quality control assistants Luke Butkus, Rocky Seto and Dave Canales; defensive backs assistant Kris Richard; and Chris Carlisle as the strength and conditioning coach, assisted by Mondray Gee and Jamie Yanchar.
