Meet Trent Kirchner, Seattle Seahawks Co-Director of Player Personnel
Since Kirchner joined the Seahawks in 2010, Seattle has made the postseason in six of seven seasons, winning at least one playoff game each year.
The Seahawks have been the NFC's most consistent team this decade, making two Super Bowls (winning one).
Before coming to Seattle as the assistant director of pro personnel in 2010, Kirchner worked with the Redskins and Panthers.
Kirchner's involvement with the personnel department has led to some important off-season additions for Seattle's playoff runs (i.e. Cliff Avril and Michael Bennett).
One of Kirchner's direct connections to the Seahawks came via general manager John Schneider. Kirchner and Schneider **both attended the University of St. Thomas**.
In Kirchner's seven seasons with the Seahawks, Seattle is 70-41-1 overall and 9-5 in six postseason appearances.
