Seahawks : Pete Carroll to take on advisory role with Seahawks


Seahawks : The Seahawks and Pete Carroll, who became the winningest coach in franchise history over the course of 14 seasons, have amicably agreed that his role will evolve from head coach to advisor to the organization, Seahawks president Jody Allen announced Wednesday. .

Allen said in a statement, "After thoughtful meetings and careful consideration of what is in the best interest of the franchise, we have amicably agreed with Pete Carroll that his role will remain with the organization from head coach to advisor " "Pete is the winningest coach in Seahawks history, leading the city to its first Super Bowl title, and making a tremendous impact on the field and in the community over the past 14 years. His expertise in leadership and building a championship culture will continue." An integral part of our organization moving forward.

"Pete will always be a beloved member of the Seahawks family."

The move comes three days after the Seahawks finished the 2023 season with a 9-8 record, but missed the playoffs for the fourth time in 14 seasons since Carroll and general manager John Schneider took over in 2010.

Under Carroll, the Seahawks had a winning record in 11 of 14 seasons, reached the postseason 10 times and won five NFC West titles. The 2013 team became the first team in franchise history to win a Super Bowl, going 13–3 in the regular season and defeating the Denver Broncos, who had the highest-scoring offense in NFL history, 43–8 in Super Bowl XLVIII. Carroll led the Seahawks back to the Super Bowl the following year, making Seattle one of three teams to appear in consecutive Super Bowl appearances this century, along with New England and Kansas City.

Under Carroll, the Seahawks led the NFL in scoring defense for four consecutive seasons from 2012–2015, making them the only team in the Super Bowl era to accomplish this feat. Carroll, who completed his Seahawks coaching tenure with a 137–89–1 regular season record, was one of two coaches, along with Bill Belichick, to be named to the NFL's 2010 All-Decade Team.

Before coaching the Seahawks, Carroll had a long career in the NFL as an assistant, defensive coordinator, and eventually head coach of both the Jets and Patriots. He then spent nine seasons at USC, building the Trojans into one of the most successful college programs in history, winning two national championships and four Rose Bowl titles.

And Carroll accomplished everything he did with the Seahawks while staying true to the philosophy he solidified during his time at USC. Before coaching a game for the Seahawks, Carroll said in 2010 that one of his goals was to refute the notion that "you can't enjoy coaching football at this level and still compete like crazy." Can win. If there's something the people have, it's done." 'Don't get it, you can enjoy it the same way we do and still work really hard and be really disciplined.'

There were a lot of skeptics at the time that such an approach would work for Carroll, but he spent much of the next decade helping make the Seahawks one of the league's model franchises.

And as much as Carroll was proud of the on-field results, he also knew that getting the best from his teams took more than just the X's and Os.
