Pete Carroll Steps Down as Seattle Seahawks Head Coach, Moves to Advisory Role

After 14 seasons as the head coach of the Seattle Seahawks, Pete Carroll is stepping down from his position. The announcement was made by team owner Jody Allen on Wednesday, and Carroll will now serve in an advisory role with the franchise.

Carroll, who is the winningest coach in team history, had previously expressed his intention to return for the 2024 season. However, the decision was ultimately made for him to transition into a different role within the organization. The move comes after the Seahawks finished the 2021 season with a record of 9-8 and failed to make the playoffs.

In a statement, Allen explained that the move was made “in the best interest of the franchise.” She also praised Carroll for his contributions to the team, saying, “Pete is the winningest coach in Seahawks history, brought the city its first Super Bowl title, and created a tremendous impact over the past 14 years on the field and in the community.”

During his tenure with the Seahawks, Carroll achieved significant success. He led the team to their first Super Bowl victory in 2013 and made the playoffs in 10 of his 14 seasons. The Seahawks also won two NFC championships and clinched the NFC West division title five times under Carroll’s leadership.

Before joining the Seahawks in 2010, Carroll had a mixed coaching career in the NFL. He had a forgettable stint as the head coach of the New York Jets and spent three seasons with the New England Patriots. However, Carroll found tremendous success at the collegiate level, winning two national championships at USC and coaching two Heisman Trophy winners in Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart.

Carroll’s impact on the Seahawks franchise extends beyond his success on the field. He has been praised for his leadership and the culture he built within the team. His expertise will continue to be valuable to the organization in his new advisory role.

As the Seahawks begin the search for a new head coach, Carroll’s departure marks the end of an era for the franchise. Fans will remember his contributions and the success he brought to the team during his time as head coach.
