Pete Carroll is the latest high-profile sports figure to become a POLITICIAN. He gave us all THE IMPRESSION in 2002 (the year that was the start of 7 consecutive Pac-10 titles for USC, including a national title) that he would be the Trojans' head coach for the long term. Turns out, he was dying to get back to the NFL.
I think Pete is leaving at the right time. Things were starting to get shaky and he has a great opportunity. The more surprising change to me is the hiring of Lane Kiffin from Tennessee and the former assistant. I heard the new coaching staff is Monty Kiffin, a great defensive coordinator. Norm Chow, the offensive coordinator when USC's offense was great. I wonder how the UCLA coach feels about losing Chow?
I'm stiull wondering how monte can be such a nice guy and his son such a dumbass, does that mean his moms a huge... lol. I hate usc but with those coaches they should do well. To bad they cant beat an sec team!

Why would he want this job? He is about one more great year from dynasty status and coaching in the pros is much different than college where he gets 20 first round picks every year.

ESPN is reporting that TO is working out for the Seahawks. I think he was injured last year and tried to comeback, but didn't catch on. Interesting to see what his body has left in the tank.

No Mora. I'm a little surprised they didn't give him another year, although I think he shoulda never been hired in the first place.
