This kinda felt like a sinking ship the moment Cam Newton walked onto the field to start the season despite clearly still being under the effects of last season's lingering injuries. To Ron Rivera's credit, he did manage to last all the way through twelve games despite benching Newton after two. At the end of the day though, when your entire team's success rests on the shoulders of a single injury-prone player then this is bound to happen sooner or later. Enter Matt Rhule. Carolina brings in Rhule as their new head coach after watching him turn Baylor's program around in just three short years despite following in the wake of a massive scandal. Rhule brings with him his defensive coordinator from Baylor Phil Snow, and hired LSU WR coach and passing game coordinator Joe Brady as his new offensive coordinator.
The Seahawks were perfectly adequate last season. 11-5 and won a playoff game. Certainly enough to keep all the coaching positions safe, but not enough to start seeing coaches getting poached to lead other teams. As a result, head coach Pete Carroll will return to continue his streak as the 5th longest tenured head coach in the NFL. Offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer and defensive coordinator Ken Norton will return as well.
