It's only June, but new Seattle Seahawks head coach Mike Macdonald has already seen enough.

Macdonald let the media know that the team's final scheduled practice of minicamp would be canceled on Thursday, and that the Seahawks have had a successful offseason.

It's been an offseason of change in Seattle, with longtime head coach Pete Carroll no longer in charge. 

Carroll is still with the team, working in an advisory role, but it's clear that the future will be in Macdonald's image.

The Seahawks will move into the 2024 season with Geno Smith at quarterback, with many of the top weapons on the offense also returning like Kenneth Walker and DK Metcalf.

The defense will continue to build on the excellent play of Riq Woolen and Devon Witherspoon in the secondary, while the front seven looks to form its own identity.

The Seahawks missed the playoffs last season for only the fourth time in the Carroll era, and both sides seemed to understand that a change needed to be made.

Macdonald comes in after spending time with the Baltimore Ravens and one of Carroll's old rivals in Jim Harbaugh at Michigan. 

He made a name for himself as a defensive guru, giving the Ravens and Wolverines formidable defensive units in a coordinator role.

He now finds himself in charge of the entire Seahawks roster, and we'll find out in a few months if he's ready for the increase in responsibilities.

Texans head coach DeMeco Ryans set a new standard for first-year head coaches last season, and Seahawks fans will be hoping for a similar performance by their team under Macdonald in 2024.
