The Seahawks have named former Washington Redskins quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor to replace the departed Jim Zorn in similar capacity, the team announced this afternoon.

Also, the team signed guard Mike Wahle to a multi-year contract. Wahle, a two-time Pro Bowl pick, started 16 games for the Carolina Panthers in 2007 and has started 128 of 142 career games.

Originally selected in the second round (24th overall) of the 1998 Supplemental NFL Draft by Green Bay, Wahle played seven years for the Green Bay Packers before signing as a free agent by Carolina in 2005. In 2005 and 2006 he played in the Pro Bowl.

Lazor will begin his sixth NFL season in 2008 after spending the previous four with Washington, serving his final two years as quarterbacks coach. He originally began his Redskins career as an offensive assistant in 2004 after a season with the Atlanta Falcons in 2003.

Before breaking in to the NFL, he was an offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach for the University of Buffalo from 2001-02. He began his coaching career at his alma mater, Cornell, working with running backs, receivers, quarterbacks and tight ends while also serving as the recruiting coordinator from 1998-2000.

While at Cornell, he set 26 school passing and total offensive record

The seahawks are quick...lol
