Carroll took the Seahawks to 10 playoff appearances in 14 seasons, winning five NFC West titles, two NFC championships, and Super Bowl XLVIII back in the 2013 season. His Seahawks coaching record is an outstanding 137-89-1, including eight 10+ win campaigns.
The Seahawks haven’t won a playoff game since 2019 and have just one postseason victory over the past seven seasons. Whether or not that played a role in Carroll’s departure remains to be seen. It is nevertheless going to feel distinctly different without Pete’s energetic, gum-chewing self roaming and sprinting on the sidelines.
