Seahawks offseason turnover reminds Pete Carroll of college days

Getty Images What the Seahawks did this offseason may seem unprecedented, but for coach Pete Carroll, it simply reminded him of the turnover he watched every year at Southern Cal.
The 66-year-old Carroll’s enthusiasm is still high after an offseason of jettisoning (or otherwise losing) a number of aging stars and replacing them with new faces.
“This feels like when you’re in college,” Carroll told Peter King of NBC’s Football Morning in America.
“That senior class graduated—those guys that did all the playing for you.
But that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a good team next time around.
There’s new juice about everything that we’re doing.
I go back and do all my teaching again.
I’m really happy about it.” Some of the former Seahawks admitted that the stories may have gotten stale after hearing them a few teams, but there’s little chance of that with this team.
That requires a different kind of leadership, and General Manager John Schneider said Carroll has embraced the challenge.
He preaches competition, open competition, every single day,” Schneider said.
