NEW YORK (AP) — Super Bowl-winning coach Pete Carroll says his Seattle Seahawks already “have an eye on what’s coming” and will start preparing immediately for next season.

Appearing at a news conference Monday morning with linebacker Malcolm Smith, the MVP of Seattle’s 43-8 victory over Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, Carroll says the work to avoid “fallout” of being champions “starts tomorrow.”

He adds: “The first meeting that we’ll have will be tomorrow. … Our guys would be surprised if we didn’t.”

Smith’s 69-yard interception return for a touchdown and fumble recovery made him only the third linebacker to earn Super Bowl MVP honors. He says teammates were telling him during the game he might get the MVP award, and his reply was: “No way.”
