Selena Roberts of Sports Illustrated pens this in-depth profile on Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll.
Roberts’ article details the reasons behind Carroll’s positive approach, the speculation of him living with a USC grad student and goes back down memory lane, taking a look at Carroll’s struggles at New England and with the New York Jets. It’s definitely worth a read.
Here’s an excerpt:
At 58, with a healthy head of gray hair, Carroll seems ageless as he preaches his pumped-and-jacked gospel in the camp-counselor wear that has come to define him: hoodie pullover, khakis, tin whistle. Over the years the hue of the hoodies has changed, but the pants haven’t. A Seahawks staffer keeps 20 pressed pairs of khakis in Carroll’s locker. “I think of them as the ultimate utility pant,” Carroll says. “You can work out in them, coach in them and look like you kind of tried around the office.”
