It's Official: Pete Carroll Is The New Seahawks Coach

We already knew this was a done deal, but the Seahawks made it official Monday afternoon that Pete Carroll will be the team’s next head coach. Carroll is expected to hold a press conference at USC Monday evening to say his goodbyes.

Here’s the statement
about the hiring from Seahawks CEO Tod Leiweke:

“We are excited to add Pete as our coach. He brings a great passion for winning and a positive attitude that is contagious. We now turn our full attention to the hiring process for a general manager. Our intended structure is for Pete and the new GM to work in a collaborative capacity on football matters.”
