Seattle Seahawks head coach and former University of Southern California head coach Pete Carroll will be inducted into the USC hall-of-fame in 2015.
Some USC fans still have ill-willed feelings toward Carroll after he bolted Los Angeles for the Seattle Seahwaks gig before the NCAA came down on USC with heavy sanctions. However, he was one of the best college football coaches this generations has seen.
The former Trojans head coach posted a 97-19 record with the program and led them to two national championships in 2003 and 2004. Carroll won seven straight Pac-10 titles, starting in 2002 all the way through 2008.
Carroll was also one of the best recruiters in college football, assembling one of the most talented teams college football has ever seen. The 2005 USC Trojans,who ended up losing the national championship game to the Texas Longhorns had many future NFL players on the team such as Matt Leinart, Reggie Bush, Lendale White, Brian Cushing, Clay Matthews, Steve Smith, Mark Sanchez, Fred Davis, Rey Maualuga, Keith Rivers, and others.
Carroll also proved he could coach in the NFL after leading the Seattle Seahawks to their first Super Bowl in franchise history this past season.
