Jay Glazer of is reporting that the Seattle Seahawks have fired head coach Jim Mora after only one season as the team's head coach.

With Mora at head coach in 2009 the Seahawks finished 5-11, but lost their last four games in miserable fashion.

At first glance, it seems that the Seattle Seahawks have decided to perform a complete overhaul of team personnel. The Seahawks fired GM Tim Ruskell last month and are now parting ways with head coach Jim Mora.

It will be interesting to see whether the Seahawks address their general manager vacancy or head coaching position first. Each decision will strongly influence each other. 

Details are forthcoming.
