Friday Round-Up: ESPN.com Picks Pete Carroll As NFC West Coach Of The Year

Good morning, 12s.

Here’s a look at what’s ‘out there’ for today – Friday, January 11 – about your Seattle Seahawks:

Pete Carroll: Best In The (NFC) West

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has been selected by ESPN.com NFC West reporters as the Coach of the Year in the division. The honor is one of four division awards handed out by ESPN, which also includes Defensive MVP, Offensive MVP, and Rookie of the Year.

ESPN reporter Brady Henderson, who covers the Seattle Seahawks, writes, “Of all the coaching challenges Carroll has faced since he came to the Seahawks in 2010, this year’s might have been the toughest.”

Despite having lost seven Pro Bowlers last offseason, coach Carroll marked a successful 2018 season with 10 wins and a playoff berth. He also charged through the season with a significant change to the coaching staff, with the hirings of offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr., and offensive line coach Mike Solari.

“Carroll has gotten 10 wins and another playoff berth out of a roster no longer loaded with blue-chip talent,” Henderson says. “It’s why he’s the choice for Coach of the Year in the NFC West – and why he’s a candidate for the league-wide award.”
