Seahawks: Matt Hasselbeck backs Pete Carroll amid offseason gossip

As the Seattle Seahawks figure out what they want their future to look like, they’ll need to figure out who will lead the team going forward.

The Seattle Seahawks must do some soul-searching. The Seahawks had an awful season, posting a 7-10 record. Now, with rumors swirling, it’s hard to tell if Seattle will commit to a full on rebuild or if they’ll try to stay the course and trust the coaches and players they have to get back to winning going forward.

Seattle will need to make some tweaks to its roster if it doesn’t want to go all in on a rebuild, but will the Seahawks need to find some new coaches as well? What about Pete Carroll as Seattle’s head coach

Is it time for the Seahawks to let go of their current head coach and hire a new one? Matt Hasselbeck believes Carroll can guide the Seahawks to win and continue to have success.

Seattle Seahawks: Matt Hasselbeck demonstrates support for Pete Carroll, Seahawks Head Coach

Hasselbeck, who currently works for 710 ESPN, a radio station in Seattle, said the Seahawks were at their best this season when they followed “the formula that Pete Carroll believes in.”

That formula, according to Hasselbeck, includes “protecting the football, not turning it over, being balanced, dominating the line of scrimmage, competing at every opportunity.”

Hasselbeck, who was a player in the NFL between 1998 and 2015, is well-versed in Seahawks culture, having lived in Seattle between 2001 and 2010. He’s also seen plenty of teams and knows a number of coaches thanks to his time in the NFL. He’s a pretty good person to trust when it comes to asking what it takes to win.

Hasselbeck suggests that people should trust coaches when he says so.

Carroll has been a great coach for many years. The veteran coach, who is now 70 years old has won many championships with the Seahawks over his long tenure in Seattle. This includes winning a Super Bowl in 2013 and getting close to claiming another one in 2014.
