article imagePro Football: Seattle and Carroll Talking

By Michael Bearak     Jan 8, 2010 in Sports
In just a matter of hours after the termination of Jim Mora after his first season, it appears the Seattle Seahawks are looking to Pete Carroll as their next coach.
It was reported early Friday by Digital Journal's Kristofor Molson that Seattle Seahawks had fired Jim Mora after his first year and a 5-11 finish. The Seahawks are also due up to replace the General Manager after Tim Ruskell resigned mid-season.
Now it is being reported by ESPN that Seattle has a short list of candidates and at the top of the list is Pete Carroll, the head coach of the University of Southern California. The early report is that Carroll met with Seahawks' CEO Tod Leiweke as well as other members of the team and are close to a deal that would pay him $7 million over five years.
Carroll previously was a head coach in the National Football League with the New York Jets during the 1994 season, but after a 6-10 season he was let go.
The early reports on the agreement between Carroll and the Seahawks calls for him to be the head coach as well as the heading up football operations. Leiweke said that they still will hire a General Manager as a form of checks and balances.
