Report: Carroll and Seahawks close to a deal

By Ted Miller

Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks are "close" to coming to contract terms, the LA Times reported.

The Times reported that Carroll would leave USC to become the Seahawks head coach and team president for a five-year contract worth $7 million a year.

Carroll made $4.4 million annually as the Trojans coach.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, however, is reporting the Seahawks will interview Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier on Saturday.

It appears that nothing is final, but Carroll's candidacy is obviously much more legitimate than when it's been reported in the past.
