Sims Shares Thoughts On Mike Solari’s Hiring
Former Seahawks offensive lineman Rob Sims joined 710 ESPN Seattle’s Gee Scott on Tuesday and talked about the impact offensive line coach Mike Solari can have as a member of Pete Carroll’s coaching staff. Solari, who was announced to the coaching staff yesterday with two other coaches, coached the Seahawks’ offensive line in 2008 and 2009.
Sims, who played with the Seahawks from 2006 to 2009, credited Solari for a lot of the success he had in the NFL as a guard.
“You’ve got a complete gem with Mike Solari,” Sims told Scott. “He’s a guy I attribute a lot of my success to.
“He definitely developed me into the player that was a consistent player, a player that ended up starting 80-straight games for the Lions. I just attribute a lot of my success to him. I wish I had more time, I would’ve love to come back and to play for the man.”
Solari, 63, also served as Kansas City’s offensive coordinator from 2006-2007 and recently spent the past two seasons as the offensive line coach for the New York Giants.
Sims is confident Solari can improve Seattle’s run game next season.
“One thing about Solari is that he won’t compromise no matter who you are as far as playing ability and playing style. He’ll find the very best out of that room to get his system done and to get that running game going.
“He’s a great coach and hopefully those guys believe in his system Day 1, because as soon as they do that you’ll have a contender, you’ll have a good running game.” Seahawks.com
