Gil Haskell (born September 24, 1943) is a long time NFL coach and the former Offensive Coordinator of the Seattle Seahawks. He began his career in the NFL as a ball boy with the San Francisco 49ers while his uncle Dr. William O’Grady was a part owner of the franchise. Coach Haskell grew up in St. Brendan's Parish in San Francisco, graduated from St. Ignatius High School in 1961, played at San Francisco State, and then was head coach at St. Ignatius from 1973-1977. Haskell then left for USC, spending 5 seasons as an assistant coach. He broke into the NFL as a coach in 1983 with the Los Angeles Rams, coaching special teams, running backs and tight ends for 9 seasons. In 1992 he joined the Green Bay Packers where he became part of Mike Holmgren's staff for the first time as a running back coach and wide receiver coach. When Holmgren left Green Bay for the Seattle Seahawks in 1998 Haskell accepted the Offensive Coordinator position with the Carolina Panthers. The next season he reunited with Holmgren in Seattle in the same role. He has indicated that he would like to be a head coach in the NFL and even launched a low key campaign for the Oakland Raiders position when the Raiders fired Norv Turner after the 2005 season. That position was eventually filled with the hiring of Art Shell.
On February 10, 2010 the Cleveland Browns announced that they have hired Gil Haskell as the Senior Advisor to President.
Gil since the passing of his wife Nancy,has (four grown daughters, Paula, Patty, Jenny and Julie) moved and no longer lives in Kirkland, Washington.
