For 15 seasons, Rocky Seto has been at Pete Carroll’s side, as an assistant of some sort. Now, the Seattle Seahawks mainstay is leaving the team to become a minister, according to a report by Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times.
Seahawks defensive assistant head coach Rocky Seto leaving team to enter ministry: https://t.co/SnKm8najht— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) January 25, 2017
Seto, 40, has most recently served as the Seahawks’ assistant head coach for defense.
Previously, Seto rose quickly through the ranks with Carroll at USC. In 1999 he joined the staff as a voluntary assistant, then coached safeties in 2002-03, linebackers in 2004-05, the secondary in 2006-08 before being promoted to defensive coordinator in 2009.
Wikipedia relates that Seto was “featured in an episode of Trinity Broadcasting Network's "More Than Conquerors" magazine show, which profiles Christian sports figures and shares their testimony.”
From Condotta’s article linked above:
“A source said the decision to leave was solely that of Seto’s as he has long had a desire to enter the ministry.”
As always, no religion at Field Gulls, please.
