Board was Seattle's defensive line coach from 2003 through 2008, then returned to the Seahawks in 2015 as an assistant defensive line. Board also spent time coaching with the Oakland Raiders (2009-10) and Cleveland Browns (2011-12).

Board, 61, was a three-time Super Bowl winner with San Francisco during a 10-year NFL career as a defensive lineman.

The Seahawks have made a number of coaching changes under Carroll, 68.

Offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell is out, replaced by Brian Schottenheimer. Defensive coordinator Kris Richard is gone, replaced by Ken Norton Jr. Offensive line coach and assistant head coach Tom Cable is out, replaced by Mike Solari, and linebackers coach and assistant head coach Michael Barrow was fired.
