Pete Carroll has been named the head coach of the Seattle Seahawks

1/11/10 in NFL   |   Pat   |   5232 respect

We are excited to add Pete as our coach. He brings a great passion for winning and a positive attitude that is contagious. Our intended structure is for Pete and the new GM to work in a collaborative capacity on football matters."
-Seahawks CEO Tod Leiweke

This basically means Carroll is the head coach only, and won't get double duty as the GM, which is what he originally was looking for. Based on Leiweke's statement, Carroll will still have significant pull in the decision making process.

We'll see if Pete can do a little better than his first try in the NFL. He went 33-31 overall in 4 seasons, including 27-21 with the Patriots and 6-10 with the Jets.
