After Sunday's disappointing loss to the Arizona Cardinals, Pete Carroll cut his press conference short before returning later to answer more questions.
The Seahawks have dropped to 3-7, marking the first time since 2011 and only the second time in Carroll's tenure that they've been four games under .500.
"I'm just not any good at this," Carroll said of handling this level of losing. "I'm not prepared for this. I'm struggling to do a good job of coaching when you're getting your butt kicked week in and week out. It's new territory, and I'm competing in every way I can think of. But I'm just unfamiliar with it. So if I leave early or if I make a mistake, I'm not on my best game right here ... I'm not making any excuses. And I don't want to get good at this."
Carroll began his postgame news conference without his usual opening statement, saying, "I don't have a lot to tell you" before inviting questions. He then left about eight minutes in, saying, "I'm really done. I'm done," and continued to walk off as a reporter was beginning to ask another question.
Carroll later returned wearing street clothes and apologized for his early exit.
