NFL Players Want To Play For Pete Carroll More Than Any Other Coach
by Luke Hughes (NESN) on Tue, Jan 28, 2014
In a recent ESPN NFL Nation survey that polled 320 NFL players on a variety of topics, Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was voted the coach whom players would most like to play for. Carroll received 72 votes (22.5 percent), almost 30 more than any other coach ....
One of Carroll’s Seahawks players, linebacker Heath Farwell, explained what separates his coach from the rest. “If you make a mistake, he uses that as a teachable moment,” Farwell said. “Pete explains what you did wrong and how you can correct. If you do something wrong, he will say that’s not acceptable by the organization and explain why. “We all make mistakes, but with Pete, it’s about learning from it. He’s not a talk-down-to-you or yell-at-you kind of coach.”
