What's the new head coach of the Seattle Seahawks who open training camp July 20 ninth.
But it's the punishment of sanctions the NCAA level against his phenomenally successful USC trojans football team.
That are shadowing him as he takes over his third NFL head coaching job.
He is author of the new book win that for ever live work and play like a champion.
Pete Carroll -- great to see you thanks for being here congratulations on the Seahawks.
College football there always is still kind of reeling from what happened eight at USC and and you have said that you feel somewhat responsible for an -- open your book I was looking through it.
Haven't read it cover to cover but I got to that.
The three sort of guiding principles that she uses -- coach always protected team no whining no complaining no excuses I love that -- we'll get to that.
And -- -- we'll get -- that as well but always protect the team.
Do you think he did enough to protect USC.
Well I love USC's loved the time I would do anything to protect the university.
We did everything we possibly could at the time we didn't know what happened here with the situation -- that came up was one single isolated situation but it.
But had impact that we we feel -- it's not Reggie Bush we should mention that he was.
For those who don't know he was seen as as getting favors he shouldn't have received as a college football there was a person from outside of the university community that was -- -- represent Reggie in and that's the story.
And in that there was something that would that took place had nothing do with the school we wish we would have known it happened right during the end of our season.
But his junior year we've just before going to the NFL.
Would we missed it and I wish we would have known but we did know about it and so.
-- of the sexes were severe sanctions were very similar to what were they again it was you you lost that title.
I don't even though you're gonna check it was like it was pretty bad as they were always says and why don't got a couple years -- still underway and then all -- that more support than everywhere.
I think that that standards that we set an expectation that we set for programming for the individuals to represent and -- really rivers that rule number one which is always protect the team was about.
Doing the right thing and always standing up and doing in making the right choices and all.
Well looking back because you were an idle for a lot of coaches I mean your record I buried the lead which is your record at USC was unbelievable was just phenomenal but the fact is a lot of coaches look up to you a lot of college coaches look up to what would you tell them about how to be on guard against what happened -- Reggie -- we.
There's a there's a necessity there's a call for the answer to weigh in college -- communities to do everything they -- in terms of awareness to make the people all around the program.
As well as the people around the community with the kids come from.
To support them to look at after the it only takes one person from the from the shadows to come out in and try to -- -- young guys and you know.
College career in in disrupted and we need to protect these guys.
At all angles it's the coach's responsibility but we need a lot of help because it goes way way way beyond that the university community so 22.
Protect these kids give them a chance to have the best career possible.
When we get a hold of them we get to take them through the system we get to teach them -- a lot of them that this wonderful potential that these kids have.
Bring it to -- and put it altogether and a team setting and university setting.
Academically and athletically it's a wonderful experience and we need to protect -- -- must.
A lot of vultures hanging around -- I've been I spent the summer Cape -- I see at the Cape Cod league games are all these these agents around just just waiting for a chance to pounce on these guys it's the same.
College football all college sports how do you how do you keep those -- -- you say you do it -- away.
Is -- that the kids have to understand and in the families have to understand and the extended families have to understand that they have a responsibility they're connected to the kid.
Anybody that tries dinner and they have to feel it coming and they've got to stop it had we known about it we would have stopped and immediately we just didn't know.
-- your mind is focused on pro ball now is -- Seahawks but.
Do you do you have a preference college sports as opposed to professional sports well -- -- I like both I think they know I can safely say that have enjoyed both I've always watched the the professional games -- young kid grown up and desire to be part of that at all.
You know in in the -- chronicling you know than those dreams who knows I tried to make it and in professional football all that.
You know that that we all have dreams and will have exciting things that we like to reach for -- in.
In the book we we we do everything we can to show some practical applications and approaches how you can.
Change the world that you may feel stuck and you may feel like you you're you're being stymied at some point and it could be in your job they could be in your relationships it could be in your personal development.
And and I think we've we've shown that there's a real path to it and we hopefully.
Can find a way to help people feel the power of their ability that.
To move forward once they find their own philosophy you know approach that's that's inherent to that let me get to the -- part because I I -- it you're against whining -- much -- -- how do you how do you fight -- You must come up against it all the time well I think this is -- about developing conscience in -- rule number one's about constant rumor two is about the conscious that you hold.
But when you talk language is so powerful and if you're complain and in -- and you're sharing your says story -- somebody else that's a very.
-- that's of important aspect in the locker room in the business split.
It's you know you you talk positively in support.
There's a time and a place but it's not to share with other people and in drag them down with you as you can develop into a vortex a downward -- out which shots you're into a losing -- -- -- spirals are gonna destroy a team destroyed and you've seen it.
Absolutely Joey can you point to an example well professional or -- or does I don't like to go to it but it at the jets.
You know we're playing for the division championship -- division lead with Miami.
The mid season point -- and we lost fluff was we -- six and five we lost.
Four of 56 games and although there and community you know at that time I didn't have the philosophy in the approach that was so solid that I have now.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- We need to work our way back then immediately get after Pete Carroll very frank discussion thank you very much for being here on -- the book is called win forever live work and play it like a champion.
