The Seahawks have found their successor to Pete Carroll. 

Seattle is hiring Ravens defensive coordinator Mike Macdonald as its next coach, NFL Media reported Wednesday

At 36, Macdonald becomes the league’s youngest head coach. He served as Baltimore’s DC the past two seasons, guiding one of the best defenses in the NFL. The Ravens led the league in sacks (60) and takeaways (31) while also giving up the fewest points (16.5 points per game) in the 2023 regular season. They ranked sixth in total defense.

Macdonald’s unit continued its strong play in the postseason. The defense was responsible for allowing only three points in Baltimore’s divisional-round win over the Texans and gave up just 17 points to the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game. But in the end, that wasn’t enough as the Chiefs defeated the Ravens 17-10. 

Shortly after Sunday’s loss, Macdonald was scheduled to interview with the Commanders and Seahawks for their head coaching vacancies. Seattle flew Macdonald in for a second meeting on Wednesday, NFL Media reported.

Prior to joining the Ravens, Macdonald had a one-year stint as defensive coordinator at Michigan, helping the Wolverines reach the College Football Playoff for the first time in program history.  

Macdonald replaces Carroll, who at 72 was the oldest head coach in the NFL in 2023. The Seahawks went 9-8 this season and missed the playoffs, ending Carroll’s tenure after 14 years.
