Chris Carlisle had come to the Seahawks along with Pete Carroll in 2010.
The Seahawks will make a change in their strength and conditioning coach as Chris Carlisle is being let go, sources confirmed Wednesday night. ESPN was the first to report the change.
Carlisle had been with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll since Carroll became the coach at USC in 2001. He came with Carroll to the Seahawks in 2010.
The reason for the change is unknown. Carroll had said on Monday that “we don’t anticipate any major changes” in the team’s coaching staff following a 10-6 regular season and a loss Saturday to Dallas in the Wild Card round of the playoffs.
But Seattle is making at least one big move in replacing Carlisle, who was one of just six coaches on the staff this season who had been with the Seahawks since Carroll took over in 2010.
