Pete Carroll tests positive for COVID-19

Mike Florio and Myles Simmons expect a bigger role for DK Metcalf after penning a three-year, $72 million extension and think its term provides a clue to the future of the Seattle Seahawks' ownership.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll has tested positive for COVID-19.

The team announced today that Carroll will isolate but continue coaching virtually.

“Yesterday, head coach Pete Carroll tested positive for COVID-19,” the Seahawks said in a statement. “He is fully vaccinated and experiencing mild symptoms, while remaining at home. Carroll remains in contact with the coaching staff and will participate in team meetings virtually until he returns to the facility.”

Carroll is the NFL’s oldest coach. He will turn 71 on September 15.
