    Pete Carroll Reaches Deal With Seahawks

    It took one mediocre season for him to see a brighter future somewhere else, I'm actually kind of surprised because in all of his interviews, he talks about how much he loves the college game. All coach speak I guess...or a whole lot of money.

    Holy. ****.

    I really thought that Pete Carroll would stay at USC until he retired. Its a plum job in a great recruiting area and he's been getting paid very well. I just don't understand why he would go back to the NFL where one mediocre year will get you fired.

    Re: Pete Carroll Reaches Deal With Seahawks

    Who does USC go after to replace him? Leach and Leavitt are big names but do you hire a coach that just got fired for misconduct? I don't think so. My number one target if I'm USC...Chris Peterson from Boise State. He recruits california already and he obviously knows how to coach.

    I think he's the obvious hot name out there but I dont see him leaving Boise. I could see them making a run at Sarkisian (Sp) the former USC assistant who took the Washington job, and I really think they are a year late on the guy would have loved to hire but Lane Kiffin already has a sweet gig.

    ESPN said Mike Reilly of Oregon State, I'd bet they definitely gauge Peterson's interest, Tuberville will throw his name in there I'm sure, possibly Sarkisian from Washington.

    I doubt this past season was the only reason he is taking this opportunity. I am sure he feels that 10 or so years at one place is enough and the fact that he just might want to prove himself at the NFL level. He might not have that many opportunities left as he is nearing an age that some might think is too old to rebuild with. Pete is a bit older than he looks.

    All above...and that much money...I don't blame him one bit!

    I wonder if Sarkisian is wishing he had stayed at USC one more year? This might be the job that Chris Peterson jumps at...if given the chance!

    Chris Petersen has a much better team in Boise than he would have at SC. Of course that didn't stop Brian Kelly.

    Well they might as well pick the coach who whipped there *** this year and beat them while they were number 1 last year.

    Harbaugh??? I'm guessing Harbaugh enjoys embarassing them more than he would like leading them. He would do well there though I think.

    I've also heard Fisher's name out the (Titans HC). I think some also mentiond Jack Del Rio. I'm pretty sure both these guys have USC connections.

    I don't know...but boy stealing Sarkisian from UW would be a kick in the pills, wouldn't it?

    This. Boise is being mentioned as a national title contender, and with two big OOC games next year, losing ONE starter, and the "big" programs falling off...if they can go 13-0 again, they should be playing in the NC game. I can't think of an accomplishment quite like winning a NC with a non-AQ team. As a coach, I'd want that on my resume.

    Back to Carroll. I wonder if the NCAA investigations have anything to do with this. They're investigating Bush, McKnight, and USC already self-imposed sanctions on the BB team because of the Floyd/Mayo controversy. It's hard to get the best players when you don't cheat, and it's REALLY hard to cheat when you're being watched.

    Of course, "...before the Super Bowl, Bill Beeeelicheck gathered his football players and said, 'let's win this one for real! Just this one time! Let's not cheat!' You know what happened? They LOST! Even if you feel like all eyes are upon you, you cannot give up on cheating, or you can lose the biggest game of your lives."

    Re: Pete Carroll Reaches Deal With Seahawks

    Carroll probably decided it was getting harder to find coordinators that made him look good in the college game so he is going to try the pros again. I do think it is some serious sanctions coming and he wants out.

    Re: Pete Carroll Reaches Deal With Seahawks

    This should be a good lesson to all of you hand-wringing Cyclone fans that are always worried about our program being a "stepping stone" and always looking for a coach that will "stay forever"....

    1) In the coaching business, every job is a stepping stone to some extent (USC was a stepping stone back to the pros for Pete Carroll).

    2) 10 years in the coaching business is about as forever as it gets...whether the coach has done fantastically well or not.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.
