After joining Michigan State football in Jan. 2022, pass rush specialist Brandon Jordan is on his way to the NFL, joining the Seattle Seahawks in a similar role. The Detroit Free Press confirmed Jordan's departure.

Jordan joined the program last year as a very highly touted NFL trainer, coaching the likes of Chandler Jones, T.J. Watt, Von Miller among many others. 

Although injuries decimated the defensive line and pass rush last season, Jordan was able to help the Spartans pull some of the top national recruits into the program. He played a major role in the commitments of top 150 prospects Andrew Depaepe and Bai Jobe, among other four star edge rushers in the 2023 recruiting class

MSU head football coach Mel Tucker and the Spartans already lost defensive line coach Marco Coleman earlier this offseason but have since filled the position with the hiring of Diron Reynolds

Jordan was seen as an unorthodox hire 13 months ago, so whether or not Tucker will go with another out-of-the-box hire to replace him will be a story to follow as spring ball inches closer.
