Pete Carroll leading Seahawks back to playoffs really seems impressive on NFL’s Black Monday

Dec 31, 2018, 11:59 AM

On Sunday night, the Seahawks locked up the No. 5 seed out of the NFC in their return to the playoffs after missing out a season prior. The next day was the NFL’s Black Monday, where a number of head coaches – including Arizona’s Steve Wilks, who Seattle beat in Week 17 – were out of jobs.
