Former University of Washington football coach Keith Gilbertson is expected to be named an offensive consultant for the Seattle Seahawks.
Official word should come shortly, but Gilbertson won't move far from his Snohomish County roots for his next coaching gig. Gilbertson took over the UW program after Rick Neuheisel was fired in 2003, and guided the Huskies to a 7-16 record in two seasons.
A former head coach at Cal and Idaho, Gilbertson graduated from Snohomish High School. He was a Seahawks assistant from 1996-98 under Dennis Erickson, a fellow Snohomish County native.
