Seahawks Vice President of Pro Personnel Will Lewis Leaves Team

Bad news for the Seahawks today, as Adam Schefter reports:

No reason was given for Lewis' departure nor was any new job mentioned. According to his bio at Seahawks.com, Will Lewis joined the Seahawks' football operations staff as the team's Director of Pro Personnel on May 20, 1999, following three years with the Green Bay Packers (1997-99) scouting department.

With the Packers, he worked closely with Seahawks' Executive Vice President & Head Coach Mike Holmgren. From 1998-99, Lewis served as the Packers' Assistant Director of Pro Personnel, following one year as a pro scout. Prior to his work with the Packers, Lewis was a defensive assistant coach for the Atlanta Falcons, under June Jones, from 1995-96.

He was promoted to Vice President of Football Operations in 2010 after the Seahawks hired John Schneider. It's a tough loss for the Seahawks, as Lewis was pretty widely respected in his field and has been with the team for over a decade. It will be interesting to see who fills his position going forward.
