Pete Carroll will be unable to work for at least a few days due to COVID-19. The Seahawks team revealed on Monday that the head coach had tested positive for COVID-19. The club reports that Carroll is completely immunised, is only having minor symptoms while staying at home, and will virtually participate in team meetings until he is given the all-clear to go back to the facility.
Carroll’s positive test results are the second significant COVID-19 news to emerge on Monday, following Kyler Murray’s suspension for at least five days from the Cardinals. Carroll, 70, is beginning his 13th season as Seahawks coach, which many consider to be a turning moment for the team after Russell Wilson was traded to Denver in the summer.
After ending 7-10 in 2021, Carroll’s squad must find Wilson’s successor while hoping to make a comeback. Even if Carroll won’t be able to participate in person for the time being, that endeavour will go on. Pete Carrol remained silent on his predicament.
