Could the dean of NFC West coaches be done soon?

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

The Arizona Cardinals could see a different face across from them twice a year starting the next year or two.

Field Gulls, the Seattle Seahawks SB Nation blog talked about how the Seahawks roster construction leads to speculation that maybe this is the final run for Pete Carroll.

From Field Gulls:

Carroll, perhaps not so coincidentally, is also under contract with the Seahawks through the 2021 season, and it would not be a surprise to see him step away at the conclusion of either 2020 or 2021. Carroll is set to turn 69 two days after the 2020 season opener, and while he doesn’t appear to be lacking for energy and enthusiasm, as with all coaches, he’ll hang things up and take on new life challenges at some point. The only question is when that will be.

While the Seahawks have won “only” one Super Bowl, they have been one of the most consistent and successful franchises in the NFL the last decade plus.

He has been the driving force, along with Russell Wilson that has kept the Seahawks as one of the NFL’s premier teams year in and out.

Now it could be winding down.

If the Cardinals have what they think they do in Kliff Kingsbury and Kyler Murray, then this could be a potential changing of the guard in the NFC West.

Let’s hope so.
