Seahawks coach Pete Carroll doesn’t sound concerned about his job security. Following yesterday’s victory over the Cardinals, Carroll told reporters that he’s in great shape on that count.

Pete also doesn’t seem to be pondering any changes to his staff. Speaking in his weekly ESPN radio hit, Carroll said he wasn’t anticipating any right now.

Special teams coordinator Larry Izzo did a sensational job this season and his position should be as secure as anyone’s.

Defensive teams coordinator Ken Norton Jr. took a lot of heat during a brutal first few games of the year. However, his unit rounded into shape around Russell Wilson’s injury in Week 5 and played exceptionally well for the rest of the season for the most part. As long as Carroll is safe, Norton should be considered safe as well.

The only maybe is offensive coordinator Shane Waldron, a relatively unknown commodity. Waldron’s offense looked brilliant the first couple of weeks then sputtered and eventually fell off a cliff after Wilson’s injury. He did appear to figure things out in Weeks 17-18 though, which should give him some breathing room.

Our money is on the entire trifecta returning in 2022. As for position coaches, they’ll need to replace their former quarterbacks coach Sean Davis, but other than that there’s no reason to believe any other change is needed.
