The former Michigan assistant coach has a new job.

Former Michigan linebackers coach Chris Partridgewho was fired by the Wolverines in November amid the NCAA investigation into alleged illegal sign-stealing, is being hired by the Seattle Seahawks as an outside linebackers coach, per Matt Zenitz. Partridge spent a total of six seasons on the Michigan football staff  in two separate stints and was also the co-defensive coordinator at Ole Miss from 2020-22.

Partridge returned to Michigan for the 2023 season as the linebackers coach, but was fired on Nov. 17, one day after the university dropped its legal battle against the Big Ten.

Although Michigan did not provide a reason for his termination, Partridge later offered clarity on what occurred in a statement released more than a week after his departure from the Wolverines.
