Dead grass?

Hi, my lawn is Bahia Pensacola and I live in Tampa, Florida. I recently bought a house and the lawn was made by sodding. It is patchy- is thr light brown/ Grey grass dead (see picture)]as when I rake it, it comes out with no resistance. If so, should I take it and remove it all so New grass can grow in its place, or should I just leave it??? Also, what is the best way to overseed, should I just lay down seed or should I get the side to germinate off the lawn first and then lay?
