Coach Sigi Schmid raises 12th Man flag

The Seahawks’ regular-season finale Sunday had a Sounders FC touch as coach Sigi Schmid was invited to hoist the 12th Man flag before kickoff. He got a nice ovation from a crowd of 67,936 at CenturyLink Field — where he, of course, roams the sidelines, as well.

Schmid, wearing a Sounders scarf, was there with his wife, Valerie, and mingled with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll beforehand. The UCLA and USC biases, respectively, appear forgotten in this photo.

Something else that gave Sunday’s game a bit of a soccer feel? This overhead display in the Hawks’ Nest.

I’ll continue to help out on Seahawks coverage through the playoffs but will still handle any soccer news that comes up. Keep in mind, the MLS SuperDraft (Jan. 17) and the start of training camp (Jan. 21) are just around the corner.

In an interview with Seahawks.com, Schmid gave this overview of the offseason:

“We’re still in search of players right now. It’s been a tougher offseason for us because of the (salary) cap constraints we’re dealing with, so we’re trying to make sure we keep a really good team together, comply ourselves with the cap and that we bring an MLS Cup next year.”
