Seattle Seahawks to hire USC’s Pete Carroll

January 9, 2010

(ChattahBox) – It was a tough season for USC this year but one would think Pete Carroll still had it pretty good, having the talent to challenge for a national championship each year.  But word is Carroll is allegedly jumping to greener pastures for the NFL. Carroll has reached agreement with the Seattle Seahawks on a deal to be their next head coach, multiple NFL sources confirmed early Saturday morning. Just Friday, Jim Mora became the first Seahawks coach to be let go after one season. ESPN reports that the official announcement might be delayed by the Rooney Rule, as the Seahawks to be in compliance with the rule, must interview a minority candidate for the head-coaching job. With Carroll already rumored to have been hired, no one is very interested in interviewing for a position they know is not attainable.

For Carroll, 58, who has mostly mediocre experiences coaching the New York Jets and New England Patriots in the past (33-31 overall), took the job perhaps because of the spectacular money, about $35 million over five seasons, and complete control of personnel decisions as coach and president of the team, replacing Mike Holmgren, now president of the Cleveland Browns. Perhaps also influencing Pete’s decision is that USC’s athletic department is still under investigation by the NCAA since 2006 regarding allegations concerning 2005 Heisman Trophy winner Reggie Bush.
