Former New York Giants assistant coach Mike Solari has accepted a job with the Seattle Seahawks to be the team’s next offensive line coach, the same position he held with the Giants. Solari spent two seasons as the Giants offensive line coach under former head coach Ben McAdoo. Solari will take the place of Tom Cable, who was the team’s offensive line coach for the past seven seasons.

Solari is the sixth different McAdoo assistant to find a job elsewhere. Mike Sullivan, Frank Cignetti, Kevin Gilbride Jr., Patrick Graham and Adam Henry have all found new employers.

In his coaching career, Solari has coached for eight different NFL teams and this will be his second stint with the Seahawks. During his two seasons with Big Blue, the team went 14-19, including a trip to the NFC Wild Card round in 2016.

According to Football Outsiders, the Giants had the 15th best offensive line this season. The line allowed an adjusted sack rate of 6.4 percent with Solari as their coach. Solari will try to help a Seattle offensive line that was ranked 31st in the NFL last season, according to the same metric.
