With Russell Wilson gone the team is focused on building toward the future this season. Pete Carroll has been the Head Coach of the team since 2010 and he likely has more days behind him than ahead of him as a Head Coach. He will overseas this rebuild for now and help set up the future of the franchise. For now, though he needs to focus on recovering from COVID and returning to training camp healthy.
