The Seahawks need a change at the helm. Who are 5 coaches who could supersede Coach Carroll and lead the team into the next decade?
The Seahawks are 9 games into the season with an abysmal 3-6 record. This is not the result many of the faithful saw coming. The team went all-in with proven veterans. They signed leaders. They sought out a new offensive coordinator to bridge the gap with Russell Wilson and the Seahawks current coaching staff.
However, it all looks to be for naught. The team is heading nowhere fast. They have a 70-year old Head Coach who doesn’t appear to be enjoying the art of coaching any longer. From every angle, he looks like someone begrudgingly trying to win one final Super Bowl to sail off into the sunset as a hero.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t appear to be a likely or even viable option at this point. Regardless of what happens the rest of the year, changes should be coming. I don’t expect anyone to be safe.
Seahawks could hire an offensive-minded coach to replace Pete Carroll
This goes from the coordinators to the head coach. It also spreads to the back office. The Head of Scouting has failed to identify real contributors in the drafts over the last several years. The General Manager has failed to capitalize on a future Hall-of-Fame quarterback.
Staples of the organization could move on. It’s completely logical that they may not want to be a part of the upcoming rebuild. They could also be simply ready for a change after taking part in the quickly sinking ship. This includes players like Duane Brown, DK Metcalf, Bobby Wagner, and Russell Wilson.
Some will say ‘why DK?’ The answer is easy, he is already tired of losing and worth a lot in terms of assets for a potential rebuilding team.
To try and slow the bleeding, the Seahawks need to be swift. They need to be decisive. The best course of action to avoid a myriad of roster moves is to relieve the head coach and the Executive Vice President Pete Carroll of his duties.
