Is Pete Carroll on the verge of leaving Seattle? The Seattle Seahawks are experiencing their worst season in a long time, sitting 3-8 and in last place in the NFC West heading into Sunday’s game against the third-place San Francisco 49ers at Lumen Field.
Losing is never enjoyable since it always leads to public suspicion that something drastic will be done to ensure that nothing like this happens again.
Enter the Seattle Seahawks owner
Since inheriting the Seahawks from her brother, Paul Allen, three years ago, Jody Allen has kept a low profile. But just because she’s not saying anything publicly doesn’t mean she’s okay with her team’s 3-8 record.
According to reports, Jody Allen is “extremely active” and “not satisfied” with the team’s performance. Allen believes the troubles in Seattle are more than simply a one-year hiccup for a team that went 12-4 last season and has won nine straight seasons.
If she views it that way, she’s correct: the Seahawks won’t have a first-round choice next year since they gave away what may be a Top 5 pick in the 2022 NFL draught as part of the Jamal Adams transaction.
And, while the Seahawks have a franchise quarterback in Russell Wilson, it’s unclear whether he’ll stay with the team amid reports that he’s dissatisfied and wants to leave.
What about Pete Carroll’s future with the Seahawks?
Pete Carroll, the Seahawks’ head coach, is under contract through 2025, and despite turning 70 this season, he has shown no signs of wanting to quit anytime soon. Allen, on the other hand, seems like a business owner who wants to make some adjustments.
Despite the several head coaching jobs now open in college football, Carroll has given no indication that he intends to leave.
