What Do I Know?

Pete Carroll is on the move:
Pete Carroll did not officially inform USC he was leaving as of Friday afternoon but sources within the university said he accepted a job with the Seattle Seahawks and only needed to agree to final contract details.

USC sources said Carroll agreed to a five-year deal with the Seahawks with the only question how much power he would have in the organization. The Seahawks lack a coach and general manager and Carroll's often expressed a hope to do both when he returned to the NFL.

Athletic director Mike Garrett is expected to target Oregon State coach Mike Riley as his No. 1 choice. The other top candidates are former USC players: Jacksonville Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio and Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher. Another possible candidate, according to sources, is Stanford coach Jim Harbaugh.

It's the typical five year NFL deal. If Carroll hasn't accomplished anything, by the tail-end of that third season, he'll be looking for a new job.

Someone needs to set up a Shanahan vs Carroll game next year, and then, of course, the obligatory matchup with Bill Belichick.
