Re: Mora out in Seattle, Pete Carroll in

You figure coaches until recently were typically 20-40 years older than their players, so it makes sense that there were a lot more white head coaches. Even if you factor in a lot of black players in the 70s and on it takes awhile to come from playing to coaching... or whatever other coaching that they were doing at the time. I think that the number of black coaches we have now isn't really impacted by the rule, just the increase in available candidates. The number of black head coaches is quite higher than the actual demographics of the population, not as far as players, but not every player can be a coach, not every player wants to be a coach, not every coach was a player at a high level, etc

Since we are not that good of a team right now I think it would be smarter for the Seahawks to start drafting Offensive Linemen & wide receivers.

I would rather have Pete Carroll as our General manager instead of a coach.(But I think he is better then Mora as a coach)

I think the timing has more to with USC's possible probation from Bowl games coming up, from all of the alleged corruption in their recruiting/athletic department. If there's no big games in their foreseable future, what's the incentive for the coach to stay? Also, he wants to grab a lifeboat before the ship goes down.

I'm not positive...but I think I heard that USC is going to go after Jeff Fisher.

I've heard the same thing. I think he's due a lot of money the last 2 years of his contract in Tennesse though. Seems like I heard something like that.

USC would be smart to get a big name head coach to keep their recruiting momentum going. Fisher - - or even Del Rio (another USC grad) - - might be just the right pick.


HOW-EVAH, the USC football coach has to work for Mike Garrett as the AD. Let's just say that Garrett's reputation as a "supervisor" is less than pristine and leave it at that.

From what I've heard, Del Rio would be more interested in USC than USC would be in him.

It's going to be amazing living in Seattle the next two years and watching Pete Carroll try to win with the Hawks.

Thankfully, Rich McKay may be replacing Garrett (who basically sacrificed our hoops program this year to assuage football penalties... which are probably coming down hard anyway).

Latest rumor is that Del Rio is the man- bringing Kennedy Pola along with him. Possibly Norm Chow returning too. I think we'd need to chase Orgeron to complete the staff.

Re: Mora out in Seattle, Pete Carroll in

Ha, Ha, Ha...... and people say our team is a joke. Yeah we conducted interviews for a new HC while the job was still filled but our HC knew he was not returning. If he didn't he was an idiot.

Mora Jr. was told he would be kept the HC and 48 hrs later told he was fired after all the Carroll rumors. LOL. Talk about back stabbing.

Thought that I read something saying Chow was staying at UCLA and it was just a rehash of earlier rumors.

well there's no way Chow's coming back now... Lane Kiffen is his mortal enemy. LK bounces around faster than Snooki on Jersey Shore.

Re: Mora out in Seattle, Pete Carroll in

Lane Kiffin that just got the Tennesse job last year? Is his dad going with him? Hmmm, his dad's a damn good Defensive Coordinator.

Re: Mora out in Seattle, Pete Carroll in

Wonder if Lane will do the same trash talking in the Pac 10 that he did this past year in the SEC
