Peltoncast No. 401

We know that Ben Johnson won’t be the Seahawks’ next coach but not yet who they will pick after they completed interviews with losing coordinators from both championship games. We take stock before discussing the M’s adding power via trade, key wins for UW men’s and women’s basketball and an important Biblical transfer for UW football.

Peltoncast No. 400

It’s our 400th episode and Tristan is straight up not having fun as the Seahawks reportedly plan second interviews primarily with defensive coaches and UW football continues to build a roster without key players following Jedd Fisch from Arizona. Plus UW basketball sees its chances of returning to the tournament take a hit for both the men and the women.

Emergency Pod: Kalen DeBoer to Alabama

It’s official: Washington football coach Kalen DeBoer will replace Nick Saban at Alabama, leading the Huskies days after leading them to the CFP championship game in just his second year on Montlake. We discuss why DeBoer’s departure doesn’t spell doom for UW football, his legacy with the Huskies and who might replace him.

Carroll Out as Seahawks Head Coach

In a shocking turn, the Seahawks announced Wednesday that Pete Carroll will no longer be their head coach as he moves into an advisor role. Ben Baldwin joins us to discuss our thoughts on the decision and who we’d be interested in replacing Carroll before we discuss Pete’s legacy as perhaps the best pro coach in Seattle sports history. (Lou Piniella was an egregious omission from that discussion. Our bad.)
