Carroll can't wait to start coaching Seahawks

Posted:

SEATTLE (KWWL) - Pete Carroll says he's glad to be a Seahawk, and looks forward to turning around the fortunes of the team.

Saying he can't wait to get started, Carroll was introduced Tuesday as the new coach of the Seahawks, a day after his going-away news conference at Southern California.

Carroll is back in the NFL after a nine-year run at USC, and the charismatic coach spent nearly an hour discussing his coaching philosophy and how he would help rebuild the Seahawks into winners again.

Seattle is in its worst two-year stretch since 1992-93, with just nine wins in 32 games since the Seahawks' most recent playoff appearance.

Carroll replaces Jim Mora, who was fired after one season.
