Bye Pete

I don't like USC and I don't like Pete Carroll...

Pete Carroll leaves USC to coach Seahawks

SEATTLE (AP)—Pete Carroll is gone from USC and back in the NFL, taking over as coach of the Seattle Seahawks after getting an offer he could not refuse.

After days of talks, the Seahawks hired the charismatic coach away from Southern California on Monday.

“The university graciously approached me to stay but this choice is about pursuing the great challenges of competing in the NFL and I found this opportunity too compelling to pass up,” Carroll said in a statement released by the university.

Carroll was scheduled to hold a news conference at USC later Monday. He ends one of the most successful runs in college football history with a 97-19 record, two national championships and seven Pac-10 titles.

“The nine years at USC have been the best years of my coaching life,” Carroll said in the statement.
