While the Seattle Seahawks figure out what they want their future to look like, they will have to figure out who will lead the team going forward.
The Seattle Seahawks have some soul searching to do. The Seahawks had a relatively tough season this year as they had a record of 7-10. Now that rumors are swirling, it’s hard to say whether Seattle will commit to a full rebuild, or whether they will try to stay the course and trust the coaches and players they must return to win going forward.
Seattle will have to make some adjustments to its roster if they do not want to go all in on a rebuild, but should the Seahawks find some new coaches as well? What about Seattle head coach Pete Carroll?
Should the Seahawks move on from their current head coach and find a new one? Matt Hasselbeck seems to believe that Carroll can continue to guide the Seahawks to finding some wins and success in the future.
Seattle Seahawks: Matt Hasselbeck Shows Support for Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll
Hasselbeck, who currently works for 710 ESPN, a Seattle radio station, said the Seahawks were at their best this season as they followed “the formula that Pete Carroll believes in.”
That formula, according to Hasselbeck, includes “protecting football, not turning it around, being balanced, dominating the line of scrimmage, competing at every opportunity.”
Hasselbeck, who played in the NFL from 1998 to 2015, is certainly familiar with the Seahawks when he played in the Seattle from 2001 to 2010. He has also seen plenty of teams and knows a number of coaches thanks to his time in the NFL. He’s a pretty good person to trust when it comes to asking what it takes to win.
So when Hasselbeck says you have to trust a coach, maybe people should trust a coach.
Carroll has been a successful coach for a long time. The 70-year-old has won at a high level with the Seahawks for much of his tenure in Seattle, including winning a Super Bowl back in 2013 and being close to claiming another in 2014.
