USC's Carroll refuses to address NFL rumors
On a day when USC's football team met for the first time since the Rose Bowl, Coach Pete Carroll refused to answer reporters' questions about a possible return to the NFL according to the Los Angeles Times.
Carroll's name had been linked to at least two NFL openings last week while he was on vacation in Hawaii. He reportedly spoke with Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank at least once about the team's search for a head coach. He also has been mentioned in media reports as a possible candidate to succeed Joe Gibbs with the Washington Redskins.
"I'm not talking about anything," Carroll said Monday upon his arrival at Heritage Hall. "I'm not commenting about anything."
Ravens could name Garrett as soon as Tuesday
Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Jason Garrett took a major step toward becoming the Baltimore Ravens' next head coach, flying to Baltimore last night to interview with team officials for a second time, two league sources told the Baltimore Sun.
If the meeting is a success, there is a chance Garrett could be named the third coach in Ravens history as early as Tuesday, one source said.
Garrett has long been considered the front-runner to land the job with the Ravens, who fired Brian Billick on Dec. 31.�The source said the Ravens are ready to interview another candidate, most likely Philadelphia Eagles secondary coach John Harbaugh, if it doesn't work out with Garrett.
