Pete Carroll has strong motivation to win where he started

Before Seahawks coach Pete Carroll took the job in Seattle, he coached at USC.

Before that, he coached the Patriots.  Before that, 20 years ago, he spent one year coaching the Jets.

A promising season evaporated in a fake spike by Dan Marino, and Carroll was fired by an aging owner who wanted to go all in for a championship in his lifetime — by hiring Rich Kotite.

As Carroll returns to the scene (sort of; MetLife Stadium was built close to Giants Stadium) of his single campaign with the Jets, he has plenty of motivation.  Bob Glauber of Newsday explained that on Monday’s edition of PFT Live.

We talked about all sorts of other things, too, from Radio Row in Manhattan.  From the Jets to the Giants to Glauber’s uncanny resemblance to Indiana coach Tom Crean.

    Dang, he had gray hair 20 years ago?

    Right. Because he wouldn’t be as motivated if this game were in New Orleans.

    Guy is creepy. You feel like you need a shower just after looking at him or hearing him talk. Creepy dudes don’t win Super Bowls.

    Looks like John Kerry in that Jets picture.

    Rich Kotite – Lane Kiffen …

    Anyone that replaces Pete tends to absolutely suck or they’re Bill Belicheck.
