Pete Carroll, Seahawks Coach, Discusses Possible Future Coaching Plans

At the start of the week, Pete Carroll indicated he would remain in place to spend a 15th season as the Seahawks’ head coach. However, a meeting with owner Jody Allen has now resulted in Carroll shifting to an advisory role with the franchise.

The timing of the move and the characteristics of Carroll’s public remarks on his future have led to questions about his desire to continue coaching. Considering that would require the 72-year-old taking a position outside of Seattle after such a long tenure in the Emerald City, a new coaching gig would come as a surprise to many. However, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero said in an appearance on the Rich Eisen Show that Carroll could be a candidate to watch in the event a vacancy for a team with a win-now roster were to appeal to him (video link).

Carroll spoke further about his situation on Friday with Brock Huard and Mike Salk of Seattle Sports. His comments in that interview point to him remaining in Seattle for at least the time being. They also make it clear, however, that his interest in spending time on an NFL sideline again has not been entirely extinguished. As things stand right now, he does not appear to be a genuine candidate for one of the league’s HC vacancies.

I don’t know that,” Carroll said when asked about his potential desire to continue coaching (via ESPN’s Brady Henderson). “I’ve got plenty of energy for it and thought and willingness, but I can’t imagine there’s a place, the right one. I don’t know. I’m open to everything, but I’m not holding my breath on that. There’s a lot of world out here that I’m excited about challenging and going after. So if that happens, it happens. We’ll see.”

The Super Bowl winner went on to note the apparent difference between his vision of the team’s direction and that of ownership, noting that the latter group is comprised of personnel which are “not football people.” It will certainly be interesting to see how his new position in Seattle takes shape (presuming he does not depart for an outside coaching gig).

The Patriots became the first team to make a HC hire on Friday, promoting Jerod Mayo to replace Bill Belichick. That move leaves seven vacancies around the league, so a market could develop if Carroll elected to change course and pursue a new opportunity. Given his comments on the matter, Carroll’s immediate future is in the air to at least an extent despite his new role in Seattle.
