Kirchner, Fitterer promoted in Seahawks' scouting department

RENTON, Wash. (AP) The Seattle Seahawks have promoted Scott Fitterer and Trent Kirchner to the role of co-directors of player personnel, the team said Thursday.

Fitterer has been Seattle's director of college scouting since 2011 and Kirchner was the director of pro personnel from 2013-14. Kirchner interviewed for the general manager position with the New York Jets this past offseason.

The pair will oversee the college scouting and pro personnel departments.

Former NFL linebacker Dan Morgan will take over as the director of pro scouting, while Matt Berry will take Fitterer's role as director of college scouting. Seattle also promoted Ed Dodds to senior personnel executive, evaluating both college and pro talent.
