NFL Franchise Notes: Pete Carroll confident he will be returning

In Seattle, Bob Condotta notes after the Seahawks' first losing season in 10 years, coach Pete Carroll was asked if he had "any question in his mind whether he would be part of the team’s future," and he "responded emphatically." Carroll: "No, I'm in great shape." But "adding to the mystery is the silence" of team Chair Jody Allen, who has "said nothing publicly since taking over the team" in '18 after the death of her brother, Paul Allen. Carroll yesterday said that he and Allen are "on the same page about the future." The coach has four years left on his contract (SEATTLE TIMES, 1/10). PFT’s Mike Florio said Seahawks GM John Schneider also is expected to "be back." But the "real question is, will the lack of the change be enough to convince Russell Wilson to sign on and stick around?" (“FNIA,” NBC, 1/10).

RHULE EXPECTED TO RETURN: Panthers coach Matt Rhule said that team Owner David Tepper "continues to remain supportive of his job as head coach." In Charlotte, Jonathan Alexander notes yesterday's loss to the Buccaneers was the Panthers' "seventh consecutive loss," with the team finishing the season at 5-12. Sources said that Rhule is "expected to return for a third season." Rhule said, “Every conversation I’ve had (with Tepper) has been about the future” (CHARLOTTE OBSERVER, 1/10).
