Pete Carroll was announced as the Seahawks' head coach, concluding four days of speculation of false alarms that followed the Seahawks' surprising decision to fire Jim Mora after one season.
"We are excited to add Pete as our coach. He brings a great passion for winning and a positive attitude that is contagious," Leiweke said. "We now turn our full attention to the hiring process for a general manager. Our intended structure is for Pete and the new GM to work in a collaborative capacity on football matters."
