The phenomenal fourteen year run of Pete Carroll as head coach of the Seahawks has come to an end, and social media reacted.

The 2023 season of the Seattle Seahawks came to a conclusion, with a 21-20 win over the Arizona Cardinals, and then on Wednesday the Pete Carroll era came to a conclusion.

Obviously it’s always shocking anytime big changes come around, and this is no different. Carroll oversaw the most successful period in franchise history, including five division titles, ten playoff appearance, was at the helm for ten of seventeen playoff wins in Seahawks history and the only Super Bowl win. Carroll finishes his tenure having posted a winning record in eleven of fourteen seasons while building a culture respected and known throughout the NFL, and the reactions on social media reflect what he built and how he went about his business.

This may well be the proper time to move on from Carroll, but the reactions to the news on social media show that he will be sorely missed by many, and not just by Seahawks fans.
