The Seattle Seahawks’ list of potential offensive coordinators continues to grow. In a report that surfaced on Friday, Seattle has now requested an interview with New Orleans Saints quarterbacks coach Joe Lombardi.

The Athletic’s Jeff Duncan tweeted the news on Friday.

“The Chargers and Seahawks have sought permission to interview Saints quarterbacks coach Joe Lombardi for their vacant offensive coordinator positions, according to sources,” wrote Duncan. “Lombardi was new Chargers head coach Brandon Staley’s OC at Mercyhurst when Staley played QB there in 2005.”

Lombardi is a Seattle native and attended Seattle Prep for high school. He is the son of Vince Lombardi Jr., who served as an assistant to the Seahawks’ general manager in the early days of the franchise, and the grandson of Vince Lombardi, the namesake of the Super Bowl trophy.

The Seahawks have reported interest in a number of candidates who could replace former offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer. Schottenheimer was let go almost two weeks ago after three seasons in Seattle.
