Pete Carroll to Seahawks!!!
ESPN's bottom line says the "Seahawks are targeting Pete Carroll, who is interested", now that Mora was let go. Seems a little odd to me.
Seattle Seahawks fire Jim Mora; Pete Carroll courted, sources say - ESPN
"Said another source close to Carroll: 'You're about to see a big headline that shakes up the major college football word,' in reference to the Seahawks' development."

Who cares? Pete Carroll leaving for the NFL would shake up the entire landscape of College Football. Not to mention the fact, our biggest rival (both on the field and in the recruiting world) would be without a head coach. No head coach with 3 weeks until National Signing day would be a nightmare....

If the NCAA is truly going to dig deeper and actually do something about the recruiting violations in football as they did with their basketball program, Carroll moving to the NFL makes complete sense. I've never been a fan of Carroll. He has had some amazing teams at USC, but I wouldn't be surprised if he jumped ship before it sinks.

I just saw this on ESPN as well! I kept wondering at first "Why now? Why this job?" Then the answer came: It sounds like he may be able to swing a GM/HC position - which I believe is his dream. He knows the importance of being able to choose his players... Unfortunately, it didn't really work when Holmgren left GB to do the same thing... in the same city.
I'm surprised still. Maybe he's thinking USC would still be reloading a bit next year, and this is the perfect time.
It would make me very happy, especially regarding recruiting. However, a small part of me wants Kelly to have his fair shot at Pete when both have stacked teams...

Silly, silly rumors.
If it happened, I'd crap my pants. Too bad I'm not four years old.
