    If he leaves....watch the NCAA finally put the punishment down on USC for the whole Reggie Bush deal. Unless another big name coach moves over to USC.

    I don't think I would make that move if I was him. But then again I am not him, but I bet he stays at USC.

    I don't think I'd ever move from college to the pros. IMO, college is SOOOOOO much more exciting.

    Re: Carroll interested in Falcons' opening

    I'll believe that when it actually happens (and quite honestly, I wouldn't mind this happening). Carroll's got a great thing going on at USC - would have to be a hard decision for him.

    Re: Carroll interested in Falcons' opening

    I don't know why he would want to leave USC. He has a sweet gig going for him out there.
    He already tried the NFL coaching thing with only little success. (I think he won the division a couple times and went to the playoffs).

    Why not stay in sunny southern California where players flock to get paid by you..i mean get played by you..

    Re: Carroll interested in Falcons' opening

    Leaving USC would be a surprise - but not a shock.

    However, leaving to go to Atlanta to deal with their current situation - regardless of how much money they toss at him - would be a shock.

    I think (and it's reported too) that the power is intriguing him. I can see that. Looks like this is a grab for straws by Blank though - considering giving all the power/control to a coach that has done damn well in college but didn't do well in the NFL.

    Could backfire big-time for both parties.

    Not sure how much it could backfire for Atlanta - they don't have much else to lose. Carroll, on the other hand, has a LOT to lose. That's why I'll believe it only if it actually happens.

    No way I would leave the best job in college football for worst job in the NFL. Especially with the NFL culture of fix it up now or you are gone.

    Re: Carroll interested in Falcons' opening

    Paying huge money to a head coach that is well-respected and having that blow up - yeah - that would be a backfire and a lot of egg on the face of Blank.

    I do think Carroll has more to lose, but giving him total control and a huge check would be very bad for Atlanta if they can't get right down there.

    I agree with the face that Atlanta does not have much to lose. Carroll did make the playoffs in 2/4 years and a division title. I'm sure Atlanta would be all for that in the next couple of years.

    I thought he was a lock for the Baltimore job. I guess that fell through.
