    Nice piece on our old coach on 60 Minutes.

    He goes into violent neighborhoods in LA at night to try to help kids in gangs get their lives straightened out.

    That's a great line SPP.

    It was cool. He gives kids his cell phone number, brings them to practice. It's impossible to argue with what he's done at USC, but this was a nice touch on the side.

    Average SECONDARY coach, joke as a head coach, absolutely awesome recruiter. The only coach in college that can out recruit Mack Brown of Texas.

    For the sake of the mental health of NFL fans in some poor city, may he never leave the college ranks.

    If he's really smart, he'll stay at USC and send the Patriots some more quarterbacks and linebackers. ;)

    I'm not a mind reader, but I get the feeling that once a teenage male potential recruit has a chance to see the cheerleaders and the campus and and the west coast lifestyle, Pete Carrol is the last thing on their mind.... though the fact that they know he's not a hard nosed a-hole of a coach doesn't hurt in cementing their decision.
