Pete Carroll said he has “plenty of energy” at 72 years old to continue coaching, and there are six remaining NFL vacancies after New England tabbed Jerod Mayo to replace Bill Belichick on Friday.
Carroll led Seattle to its lone Super Bowl title after the 2013 season, but the Seahawks have won only one playoff game since 2017. Could a team seeking a quick return to contender status be interested in a coach who posted 11 winning seasons in 13 years in Seattle?
SportsBetting.ag is offering odds on Carroll for each of the six remaining openings, although he’s not among the top five favorites for any of them.
PETE CARROLL NEXT TEAM ODDS
–Carolina Panthers (+1500)
–Atlanta Falcons (+2000)
–Las Vegas Raiders (+2000)
–Tennessee Titans (+3300)
–Washington Commanders (+4000)
–Los Angeles Chargers (+5000)
The shortest odds are with the Panthers, who fired Frank Reich midseason. However, Chargers offensive coordinator Kellen Moore is the current favorite at the book at +2000 and Carroll is also behind eight other potential candidates.
His longest odds are to land with the Chargers, despite the team having a playoff-caliber roster led by franchise quarterback Justin Herbert. Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh, who Carroll waged many fierce battles against when the former was the coach of the San Francisco 49ers, is the odds-on favorite at -200.
Carroll doesn’t know the level of interest that may or may not find, but he’ll be all ears if the phone rings.
“I don’t know that,” he told 710 ESPN radio in Seattle. “I’ve got plenty of energy for it and thought and willingness, but I can’t imagine there’s a place, the right one. I don’t know. I’m open to everything, but I’m not holding my breath on that.
“There’s a lot of world out here that I’m excited about challenging and going after. So if that happens, it happens. We’ll see. I really don’t know what to tell you about that yet.”
