With the arrival of Pete Carroll looking imminent at this point, I can understand the general negative feelings towards the move. It seems bizarre that the Hawks would switch direction so radically and hand the franchise over to a wildcard like Carroll at such a crucial, defining stage in the franchise. The next few years will most likely determine whether we quickly ascend back to the top of the division (retire Kurt, for the love of God retire) or remain mired in mediocrity for the next decade. At this point though, as fans, we should recognise that this may end up being a great move. I've attached a profile on Carroll that a lot of you may have already read. While it's overtly fawning, it's a really good piece of writing and made me feel somewhat better about the future.
