COACH PETE CARROLL
SECOND SEASON WITH THE SEAHAWKS (7--9)
Carroll is a blend of college enthusiasm and NFL know-how. He shocked everyone last season by leading the Seahawks to a division title, then knocking off the defending champion Saints. His penchant for remaking the team is a plus in the long run, but it could lead to some growing pains this season. Carroll values size, athleticism, smarts and physicality. His guys all have that. All they need is experience.
