This isn’t his first go-around with the NFL. In his first NFL head coaching stint, Carroll lasted just one season with the Jets, taking the team to a 6-10 record in 1994. He coached the Patriots for three seasons, 1997-99, and was 28-23, with one division title and two playoff berths.
This story really surprises me because I didn’t think that Arthur Blank would ever be interested in hiring another college coach after Bobby Petrino screwed them but it is what it is.
Do I think Carroll will leave? Not at all. USC is already being named by many experts as the team to beat in 2008. They were 11-2 last year and he really embodies USC. Even though he would have a lot of say if Blank does offer him full control, I still don’t see the Falcons becoming a contender or even a good job anytime soon. In 2-3 years he will end up getting fired and probably go back to college.
