Rumor: USC Coach Pete Carroll to Seattle Seahawks?

On Friday morning, the Seattle Seahawks confirmed the firing of head coach Jim Mora. This firing came only months after Seattle fired then general manager Tim Ruskell.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting that the Seattle Seahawks are targeting USC head coach Pete Carroll for their vacant head coaching position. These sources also indicate that Carroll is interested in the Seahawks head coaching position, and that he is currently trying to persuade USC offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates to leave with him.

As of now, the Seahawks have not commented on which direction the head coach search will take, but Chris Mortensen told ESPN that rumors surrounding Seattle's interest in Carroll were so strong that, "at this point, it would be surprise if it did not happen."

Pete Carroll has spent nine years at USC, amassing a 97-19 record, along with seven consecutive conference championships and two national championships.
