The Seattle Seahawks were expected to be one of the worst teams in the NFL in 2022. A career resurgence from Geno Smith and a team that fought hard for head coach Pete Carroll were enough for a 9-8 season with a postseason appearance.
Heading into his age-72 season, Carroll once again has had to field questions about his future.
Appearing on his former player Richard Sherman‘s podcast, the cornerback asked Carroll about how much longer he was going to continue coaching.
Look how much fun I’m having. I’m having the time of my life right now. This team we’re building right now is as fun as any team we’ve ever had. Everybody’s in, everybody’s all-in. We’re tuned in, we’re having a blast.
Turning back the clock
With Carroll feeling like his younger self around the team he’s coaching, it’s no telling when he will ride into the sunset. But he isn’t even entertaining that thought for now.
We’ll just keep going. Right now I don’t even care about that thought. It’s never been about winning the one time, it’s about how long can you keep winning.
Carroll clearly is locked in on getting back to the Super Bowl and hoisting the Lombardi Trophy once again. Their last triumph came in 2014 against the Denver Broncos, before losing the following year to the New England Patriots in heartbreaking fashion. They haven’t made it back since.
