This story by the AP states Pete Carroll left USC to become the coach of the Seattle Seahawks because he loves a challenge and the NFL.
Pete Carroll loves challenges and the NFL game. The Seattle Seahawks offered both, and not even Southern California could compete.
Carroll ended his nine-year tenure with the Trojans on Monday, leaving behind a program facing multiple woes for a lucrative deal to coach the Seahawks.
“If you know anything about me, you know I can’t pass up this challenge,” Carroll said.
But there’s one angle to this story that the AP leaves out. Carroll will get to love a lot more of his income because he’s moving from a state that rapes the rich to a state with no income tax to speak of. He’ll be laughing all the way to the bank while California goes bankrupt. When you treat the wealthy like the goose that lays the golden eggs, you can’t be surprised when they fly the coop.
