Russell Wilson didn't want the Seattle Seahawks to move on from Brian Schottenheimer as their offensive coordinator.

Now he wants some say on who they hire to replace him.

"I think it's vital, it's critical, super significant, obviously, that I'm a part of that process," Wilson said. "Coach and I have definitely been talking about that, [general manager John Schneider] too as well. We've had some ... great dialogue about the thought process of who we want, the leader ... the innovator, all that kind of different stuff that you want. I think that's the super critical thing, obviously at this point in my career because you spend every day with that person ... As many hours as me and Schotty spent together, I'm going to miss the guy because we spent so much time together and worked so hard.

"The next person, whoever that is, it's really critical that we're on the same page at all times and always talking and vibing and really, really on the same page."
