Geno Smith
Pete Carroll No Longer Seahawks HC
1 month ago

The Seattle Seahawks and Head Coach Pete Carroll have announced Carroll will no longer serve in the HC role.

In what appears to be an amicable split, Pete Carroll will no longer be the Head Coach of the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks released a statement stating that Carroll and the team have “agreed” that his “role will evolve” from HC to “advisor.”

 

The implications of the move are unknown, for now. The Seahawks’ veteran QB Geno Smith experienced a career renaissance in 2022 with Carroll, but struggled this past season after dealing with multiple injuries. Carroll has always been known as a defense-oriented HC, but the team moving to more of an offensive emphasis to utilize it’s young offensive weapons could benefit Smith, if he’s retained.

 

RBs Kenneth Walker and Zach Charbonnet will be entering their 3rd and 2nd seasons, respectively, WR Jaxon Smith-Njigba will be a high-upside 2nd-year receiver with room to expand on his rookie season, and DK Metcalf finished 2023 with more yards and a higher yards-per-target than he has posted since 2020. The weapons are in place for Smith to return to Top 10 production in 2024 with a Ben Johnson type at the helm.
