The Seattle Seahawks are looking at bringing back former defensive coordinator Dan Quinn as they transition to the first year of the post-Pete Carroll era.

Carroll will still work in the front office as an advisor, but the head coaching spot is vacant. The Seahawks have not been bad for quite some time but failed to crack double-digit wins three years running and are looking to shake up the franchise.

Whoever accepts the position will have big shoes to fill. Here’s a list of candidates and betting odds to be the next coach of the Seattle Seahawks.

Top Favorites for the Seattle Seahawks Job

Dan Quinn (+100)

Quinn was the architect of the Legion of Boom defense and went to two Super Bowls with Seattle, beating the Denver Broncos 43-8 XLVIII to earn his first Super Bowl ring. Quinn also made it back to the Super Bowl as the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons but infamously blew a 28-3 lead against the New England Patriots. He has familiarity with the franchise, is a proven winner, and has done wonders with the Dallas defense in recent years.

Mike Vrabel (+400)

Vrabel has no ties to the Seattle organization or coaching staff, but he embodies the intensity and defensive mindset that helped them thrive in recent seasons. He’s a more youthful 48-year-old (while Carroll is 72) and could provide the spark that seemed to be missing for the past couple of seasons. He also knows how to get the run game going following his time with Derrick Henry, which would greatly benefit the Seahawks.

Bobby Slowik (+600)

Slowik cut his teeth with the Texans this season and made a resounding impact, helping C.J. Stroud become the third player (player, not rookie) ever to lead the league in passing yards per game and touchdown-to-interception ratio. He’s more of a question mark because of his limited experience but is a popular candidate for multiple teams.

What Went Wrong with the Seattle Seahawks?

The Seahawks never won fewer than seven games and only missed the playoffs four times during Carroll’s tenure. However, two of those years without a trip to the postseason came in the last three seasons, and various deficiencies left the team seemingly stuck in second gear.

Carroll was not expecting to be fired but transitioned amicably to a role in the front office. He figures to have input on the hiring of the next coach, who is entering an organization with a strong culture and passionate fanbase.

Unfortunately for whoever takes over, the Seahawks have the ninth-least cap space and the 16th pick in the draft. They might not have much of a chance to revitalize the team in year one but can implement their system and evaluate who will and will not be part of the long-term plan.
