It has been almost a month since the Seattle Seahawks shocked many fans and observers by moving on from Pete Carroll, the most successful coach in franchise history after fourteen seasons. Subsequently several members of the coaching staff interviewed elsewhere, including Shane Waldron and Andy Dickerson, with some members of the staff landing a new role quickly, while others continued to seek their next stop.
One member of the coaching staff, who had interviewed with the Chicago Bears along with Shane Waldron and Chad Morton, has reportedly decided where he will coach in 2024, but it’s not the Windy City.
