Alex Gibbs' replacement a familiar one

Seattle fans might have a hard time distinguishing their Seahawks from the Omaha Nighthawks if coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider keep hacking away at the roster.

The teams' offensive line coaches are already indistinguishable.

It's not as bad as it sounds.

Pat Ruel is leaving the Nighthawks to replace Alex Gibbs as the Seahawks' offensive line coach, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports, and the fit should be good because Ruel coached under Carroll at USC from 2005 until Carroll's departure earlier this year.

The Seahawks have yet to make an announcement. They're busy reconfiguring the roster. Expect the moves to keep coming.
