Earlier this month, Seattle Seahawks quarterbacks Jedd Fisch accepted the quarterbacks coach/offensive coordinator position at the University of Miami.
After the Seahawks fired offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates on Tuesday, and Josh McDaniels accepted the St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator position, they were reportedly attempting to retain Fisch.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, overtures from the Seahawks will not keep Fisch from going to the Hurricanes.
Fisch joined Pete Carroll’s coaching staff last February after spending one season as the offensive coordinator at the University of Minnesota.
Prior to his stint with the Gophers, Fisch coached receivers for one season with the Denver Broncos, where he worked with Bate, and spent sevens as an offensive assistant with the Baltimore Ravens and Houston Texans.
Fisch is a University of Florida graduate who worked under Steve Spurrier as a graduate assistant in 1999-2000.
With Fisch out of the offensive coordinator picture in Seattle, the focus now shifts to Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell and Baltimore Ravens quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn.
