Now there are seven.
Pete Carroll will continue to coach the Seahawks. The group announced the move on Wednesday.
“After thoughtful meetings and careful consideration of the franchise's best interests, we have amicably agreed with Pete Carroll that his role will evolve from a coach to being with the team as a consultant,” the team said in a statement. “Pete is the winningest coach in Seahawks history, bringing the city its first Super Bowl title and making a tremendous impact on the field and in the community over the past 14 years. His experience in leadership and building a championship culture will be an integral part of our organization as it continues to thrive. Pete will always be a beloved member of the Seahawks family.”
The 72-year-old coached the team since 2010, taking it to two Super Bowls and winning one.
Carroll, who also served as VP of football operations, is under contract through 2024. He is tied with Mike Shanahan and Tom Coughlin for 14th all-time with 170 hits.
With the Seahawks, Carroll went 137-89-1. He coached the Jets and Patriots.
The team unexpectedly made the playoffs in 2022. This year, they stumbled down the stretch and failed to qualify.
Carroll is the seventh coach fired in the current cycle.
