I'm hearing Jeff Fisher and Jack Del Rio as potential replacements.

Good article as to why now is the best time to leave. Seems like he and the USC athletic director don't exactly see eye-to-eye.

I think that USC is probably going to be facing some serious sanctions from the NCAA finally. That is my guess as to why Carroll is leaving all of a sudden for Seattle of all places. Carroll has had offers the last few off seasons and why Seattle right now of all places when the team is in shambles? It just doesn't make sense to me. I think it will be the sanctions coming and it would be about time.

I think Carroll would be happy at Seattle. He would have money and control, not to mention a great fan base and stadium.

Well this all just came out of nowhere. It just seems fishy with the timing and all. Very sudden.

Are you serious or wishful thinking? I'd love to see Fisher out of the division, it would definately hurt Tenn. Del Rio....really doesn't matter.

I just saw on NLF Network. Carroll agreed to terms (in principle) with the SeaHawks.

My question is why the SeaHawks, why not the Bills, or Bucs.

My guess. He gets to stay on the west coast and will likely have a lot of input on personnel.

Just an easy question is why would you want to go to the Bucs or Bills?

I agree. But the Bills have already interviewed both Shanahan & Cowher..... the weather is better in Tampa.

The Seahawks just recently created an opening, & they've already got their man??

Seems kinda fishy to me.

Reggie will be a Seahawk next year. This has to be because USC wont be able to play bowl games for na few years.

Tony Dungy made a tongue in cheek comment on the Carroll hiring that it's easier coaching poor 19 year olds than it is coaching rich 25 year olds.

Why the Seahawks not the Bills or Bucs.
Bills are in the AFC East and have to play the Pats, Dolphins, and Jets twice a years.
Can't win division. first year, must rebuild to play the division
Bucs are in the NFC South and have to play the Saints, Falcons and Panthers twice a year.
If history plays out once more, then the Bucs win the division lol: not happening Saints and Falcons are to good
Seahawks are in the NFC West and have to play the Cardinals, 49ers and Rams twice a year.
He could win the NFC West next year if he has a winning division record and gets lucky.

You can put money on it that they go QB with their #1 pick.

Which makes me think more than ever that USC will be investigated soon(are already is) and maybe his message wasn't getting through anymore. These guys have egos and I'm sure he wanted another shot. He did take the Pats to the playoffs twice. I just don't think his rah-rah stuff works in the NFL as well.

Agree here. I think the Reggie Bush thing comes back to light among other issues and as Tex says, there may be some serious sanctions coming down.

They shouldn't allow this guy to stay in the NFL for a couple of years then all of the sudden go to work for UCLA or Cal or whomever.

It's not like the coach is telling these kids to take cash. Hell look at all the crap that happens at UT and its players, you dont hear people telling Mack that he is responsible for his players actions off the field. Mike Garrett is ore at fault here then Carroll, but no coach and I mean no coach in the NCAA is guilt free, some just never get caught.
