One hint on Pete Carroll's Seahawks future
Posted by Danny O'Neil
He explained that the rule applies to high-level football operations positions such as general manager, executive vice presidents. It did not, however, apply to presidents because many of the presidents across the league -- perhaps most -- don't have any involvement in football operations. Now that wasn't the case in Seattle with Tim Ruskell, who was both president and general manager. Wooten then said that the indications from Seattle would be that those positions would be split.
Read that last sentence. Now, it's not the final word on what Seattle plans to do because the Seahawks could always change their mind, but with Carroll now firmly identified as part of Seattle's future, it could be a hint as to what will happen.
Seattle could name Carroll as president and head coach and hire a general manager, and Wooten confirmed that Seattle had expressed the intention to interview Marc Ross, the director of college scouting for the New York Giants. Wooten said another minority candidate had been identified by Seattle, but did not reveal that.
