Arkansas is looking for a new head football coach to replace Bobby Petrino, and a report says they attempted to hire Pete Carroll. 5News Sports in Arkansas says the school reached out to Carroll but was turned down by the current Seahawks coach.
Carroll seemed to confirm the overture via Twitter, and he also promoted a colleague for the gig:
I still love the Arkansas fight song… But Mooch is the man… Go Razorbacks!

“Mooch” is Steve Mariucci, who hasn’t coached since being fired by the Lions in 2005. Mooch has been mentioned in connection with several jobs since then. News 5 reported that it was Mariucci’s agent who contacted the school about the vacancy. My guess is Mooch’s agent is just doing a really good job of keeping his client relevant by dropping his name in various coaching searches. Not only does that help in case Mooch ever wants to get back into coaching, but it’s also a good tactic for gaining leverage in contract discussio...
BEST OF MAXIM
Arkansas is looking to fill its head coaching vacancy since firing Bobby Petrino. They reportedly contacted Pete Carroll about it.
According to John Engleman of KFSM Channel 5 in Arkansas, Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll was contacted by the University of Arkansas regarding their head coaching job.
Of course Carroll declined any type of offer Arkansas was willing to offer him, since it really wouldn’t make sense for him to leave the Seahawks and head back to college football, when he’s in a nice...

When the NFL revealed the new Nike Jerseys at the beginning of the month, the Seattle Seahawks had arguably the coolest jersey out there, and had the most change to what they had previous. Many ‘Hawks fans were ready to buy them that day, but had to wait until April 16th to pre-order them.
According to the A-B-C's I learned as a kid, the Seahawks jerseys should be listed here...
If you believe the reports of a TV station out of Fayetteville, AR, The University of Arkansas is interested in former USC and current Seattle Seahawks head football coach Pete Carroll to replaced the disgraced ex-Razorbacks HC Bobby Petrino, The only problem is that Carroll has no interest in return for the job. He has also placed his support via Twitter behind another coach...
With David Hawthorne now with the Saints, the Seahawks are in a desperate need at the linebacker position.
Most Likely On The Team
Luckily they were able to resign Leroy Hill and Matt McCoy the other week, both on one-year deals.
Also still on the team is K.J. Wright, who played exceptionally well as a rookie last season. In his first year in the NFL, Wright played...
Love/Hate Relationship with Schedule Makers
I love prime time games as a fan. As a season ticket holder of the Seahawks and a share holder of the Packers I am very excited for the September 24th Monday Night Football game at Century Link Field.
Ever since Mike Holmgren chose to leave the Packers to take over as Head Coach/General Manager of the Seahawks in...
