The Los Angeles Times reported Friday that Seahawks chief executive officer Tod Leiweke flew to California this week to interview USC coach Pete Carroll for the job.
SEATTLE (AP) - Pete Carroll has reportedly agreed to leave
Southern California after nine years to return to the NFL and coach
the Seattle Seahawks.
ESPN cited multiple league sources Saturday, saying Carroll has
reached an agreement with a team that went 5-11 and fired coach Jim
Mora on Friday after one season. The Los Angeles Times has reported
Carroll also will be team president.
The Seahawks also are speaking with Minnesota defensive
coordinator Leslie Frazier. Teams must interview minority
candidates for head coaching jobs.
Carroll's agent, Gary Uberstine, did not return calls and
e-mails from The Associated Press. The Seahawks are not commenting.
Carroll coached the New York Jets and New England Patriots and
had a 33-31 record.
