Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today — Thursday, March 9 — about your Seattle Seahawks:
Seahawks Rank High In ESPN's Front-Office 'Stability Index'
Taking a break from NFL free agency, ESPN Senior Writer Mike Sando took a look around the league at franchises that could be looking for new head coaches and general managers to examine the likelihood of them making a change after the 2017 season. Sando grouped teams in different categories ranging from the ones most likely to make a change, to the ones with the most stability and foundation that are unlikely to make one.
With their success in the John Schneider and Pete Carroll era, the Seahawks were one of six teams most likely to not make a change because of their consistency and recent success. Here's why Sando placed the Seahawks among the league's elite just behind New England:
*GM John Schneider's deal runs through 2021. Coach Pete Carroll is signed through 2019, as is quarterback Russell Wilson. That is a recipe for no change. *
Since Schneider and Carroll took over in Seattle, the Seahawks not only claimed their first championship in franchise history in Super Bowl XLVIII, but have recorded a 70-41-1 record with five consecutive postseason appearances.
