The Seattle Seahawks will have a new head coach for the 2024 NFL season. Pete Carroll was removed from his position after 14 seasons, by far the greatest, most successful stretch of football in franchise history. Carroll is expected to take an advisor position within the organization, but his days of both coaching the team and controlling personnel as Vice President of Football Operations are over.

Seahawks general manager John Schneider is in charge of the coaching staff and the search for Carroll’s successor. A wide net has been cast and there are a mixture of familiar names, former head coaches, and prospective first-time head coaches.
