Pete Carroll Out as Seahawks Head Coach


RENTON, WA — In a surprise move from the Seattle Seahawks, long-time and Super Bowl-winning head coach Pete Carroll is out as head coach of the Seahawks. The Seahawks' owner, Jody Allen, put out a statement on Wednesday.

"After thoughtful meetings and careful consideration for the best interest of the franchise, we have amicably agreed with Pete Carroll that his role will evolve from Head Coach to remain with the organization as an advisor," Allen said.

"Pete is the winningest coach in Seahawks history," the statement continued. "(Pete) 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."

Carroll, 72, has been the head coach in Seattle since 2010, accumulating a 137-89-1 record and leading Seattle to a win in Super Bowl XLVIII over the Denver Broncos. 

"His expertise and leadership and building a championship culture will continue as an integral part of the organization moving forward. Pete will always be a beloved member of the Seahawks family," Allen concluded.

Seattle finished the 2023-24 season with a 9-8 overall record, just missing out on the final playoff spot due to tie-breakers with the Green Bay Packers. Since the departure of Russel Wilson, Seattle has struggled to find a replacement at quarterback and has had two down years in a row. Geno Smith filled in admirably these last two years, but injuries bit the Seahawks' quarterback in 2023. 

Carroll coached the Seahawks for 14 seasons, made ten playoff appearances, and brought Seattle its first Super Bowl Championship.
