The imminent announcement of Carroll’s hiring in Seattle will conclude a whirlwind week in which Seattle fired Jim Mora after one season and hired Carroll, an overwhelmingly successful college coach who now returns to the league where he was fired twice as head coach in the 1990s.

In nine seasons at USC, Carroll went 97-19, won seven bowl games and two national championships, and had 14 players chosen in the first round of the NFL draft.

Kiffin calls USC his ‘dream job’

Lane Kiffin called USC his “dream job,” Wednesday during a news conference introducing him as the Trojans’ new football coach.

Just 14 months on job as Tennessee’s coach, the former USC assistant was contacted by the athletic department shortly after Pete Carroll resigned to take the Seattle Seahawks coaching position. It didn’t take long for him to accept the Trojans’ offer.

“When I first got here, as I continued to develop relationships here and see the power of SC, it became obvious to me that this was the best job in America.”

The 34-year-old Kiffin, who endured a stormy tenure as the Oakland Raiders coach before being fired by owner Al Davis, turned Tennessee from 5-7 to 7-5 in his one year with the Vols.

His short stay in Knoxville wasn’t without controversy, whether it was statements aimed at opposing SEC coaches or secondary NCAA violations.

Kiffin said his approach here won’t be the same.
