All I can say is that Pete Carroll must be really pissed at Mike Garrett. I can't think of any other reason why a football coach would want to leave one of the best jobs in the world for one that is...well, not one of the best jobs in the world.
As a Cal fan, I heartily endorse the move. But as a football fan, it kind of bums me out, because there's no doubt in my mind that Carroll - assuming the deal goes through - is making a big mistake. He's been great for college football, and even though I root against his team as hard as I root against Florida, he's never bugged me the way that Urban Meyer does.
Oh well. It's his life. Whatever happens, I hope it works out for him.
