With Seattle, Saleh is responsible for assisting coordinator Gus Bradley with day-to-day responsibilities and aids Ken Norton, Jr. on and off the field with the development of the linebacking corps.

Linebackers were regarded as the strongest group of the 2009 Houston defense. The group boasted the 2006 and 2009 AP Defensive Rookies of the Year in DeMeco Ryans and Brian Cushing, respectively.

Saleh served as the Texans defensive assistant for four seasons (2005-08), handling the quality control aspects of the defense, similar to his duties with Seattle this season.

Saleh joined the Texans during the 2005 season after spending the previous four seasons at the collegiate level; working at Georgia (2005), Central Michigan (2004) and Michigan State (2002-03). Born in Dearborn, Mich., on January 31, 1979, Saleh attended Northern Michigan University where he started at tight end for four years. He and his wife, Sanaa, have two sons, Adam and Zane.
