Mark Sanchez received a text message from Pete Carroll during the preseason. Carroll, Sanchez's coach at Southern California who now leads the Seattle Seahawks, told Sanchez he was happy that his former quarterback was back having fun. "That means the world to me," Sanchez said this week. It was a departure from January 2009, when Sanchez bypassed his final season of college eligibility for the NFL draft after a sterling performance over Penn State in the Rose Bowl. Carroll disagreed with Sanchez's decision, and he made that clear during a news conference while mentioning the hurdles for quarterbacks who leave college early.

PHOENIX - And, just like that, Pete Carroll endorsed Chip Kelly's coup. After only two seasons in the NFL, the Eagles' wunderkind coach reacted to general manager Howie Roseman's excision of Kelly's front-office ally, Tom Gamble, by forcing owner Jeffrey Lurie to remove Roseman from personnel evaluation and allow Kelly to structure the department to his liking. The move cemented Kelly's contention that he had final say in building the Birds all along. Carroll approves.

It may seem that the only thing Joe Paterno and Pete Carroll have in common was that neither coached in the 1923 Rose Bowl - the last time Penn State and Southern Cal met in the "Granddaddy of Them All. " But if you look closely, there are similarities between the high-profile coaches, who are preparing to face off for the first time in the 95th Rose Bowl on Jan. 1. There are jokes aplenty contrasting the ripened Paterno and his Nittany Lions...

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Within seconds after Malcolm Butler intercepted Russell Wilson with 20 seconds left in Super Bowl XLIX, many were calling the Seahawks' decision to throw on second and goal at the 1-yard line, rather than running the ball, the worst play call in NFL history. That's a lot of football to cover, but one thing is for certain: With the NFL's popularity at an all-time high - as evidenced by Sunday night's game being the most viewed Super Bowl ever - Seattle's decision to pass rather than handoff to bulldozing running back Marshawn Lynch will be the most discussed play call ever.

National signing day - the first day high school football recruits can sign letters of intent with the colleges of their choice - was Feb. 1. For Vidal Hazelton, signing day will finally come Friday, more than three weeks later. According to his father, Dexter, Hazelton will announce his decision sometime around noon from his high school, Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va. The highly coveted 6-foot-3, 200-pound wide receiver - considered a top-10 national prospect by most recruiting services - will choose between Penn State and Southern Cal. Hazelton's decision will not be made via a press conference but by contacting the appropriate parties.

New York Jets defensive coordinator Pete Carroll got a little carried away after Miami's Pete Stoyanovich missed an extra point that allowed New York to stay ahead of the Dolphins late in Sunday's game. After Stoyanovich atoned for the miss with a game-winning 37-yard field goal with seven seconds left, Carroll apologized for making the "choke" sign that was caught by television cameras. Carroll apologized to Stoyanovich after the game and made a public apology yesterday on Miami and New York radio stations.

In Seattle's 42-13 win over San Francisco on Sunday night, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was in the mood to run up the score. He suggested scoring one more TD and going for a two-point conversion with his team leading, 42-7. But coach Pete Carroll overruled him. "I'm not going to lie to you," Sherman told Yahoo Sports. "I told Pete, 'Let's score and go for two.' He said, 'We have more class than that.' " The Seahawks have history with the 49ers and their coach, Jim Harbaugh.

Pete Carroll was a nice guy who finished last. And now, he's finished as coach of the New England Patriots. The likable defensive whiz kid who inherited a Super Bowl team from Bill Parcells was fired yesterday after three consecutive years of declining results. Carroll departed with a .549 winning percentage - the best in Patriots history. But the defending AFC champions went 10-6 in his first year, 9-7 in his second and 8-8 this season, good for last place in the AFC East.

According to reports, the Seattle Seahawks either have or haven't already reached an agreement to hire Pete Carroll as their new head coach. But a deal seems imminent. ESPN, citing multiple NFL sources, reported Carroll and the team have a deal in principle that could be announced as early as today. The Associated Press, however, reported there is no deal yet and that talks may continue into today. Seattle fired head coach Jim Mora Friday. Both ESPN and AP reported that the Seahawks are preparing to interview candidates for their general manager's position.

A plane owned by Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga flew to Costa Rica, where Southern California coach Pete Carroll was vacationing, according to flight records. A Dolphins spokesman declined to say whether Huizenga met with Carroll about replacing Nick Saban, who left to coach at Alabama. USC spokesman Tim Tessalone said Carroll was expected to return from vacation today. In the 1990s, Carroll coached the Jets for one season and the Patriots for three before being fired. As recently as last week, he denied rumors he wanted to return to the pros.

THE MORE you examine the teams that have risen to the forefront of the NFL in the last few seasons, the more you get the sense that the guys who matter most are the ones around the head coach. Jeffrey Lurie emphasized the "trajectory" of his organization when he explained his decision to dismiss Chip Kelly after three seasons. When you look at the trajectories of teams such as the Seahawks, Broncos, Chiefs, Packers, Steelers, and Vikings, they all seem to have two things in common: a stable front office rich in scouting and roster-building experience, and a veteran defensive coaching staff that had an immediate impact on the performance of the players it inherited.

ABOUT A MONTH ago, there was optimism all about the Eagles. Though they had more acne than a 15-year-old kid, things still looked rosy after Jordan Matthews' 41-yard touchdown beat the Cowboys in overtime. A bright light shined at the NovaCare Complex. Who knew it was an oncoming train? Three consecutive losses have dropped the Eagles to 4-7. Still, postseason hopes continue to flicker because the only team that seems interested in making a run at the NFC East title is Washington.

YESTERDAY, Delisa Lynch channeled her inner Donald Trump, writing that Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell should be fired. The mother of Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch made her feelings known on Facebook after Sunday's game in which the Rams stopped her son on fourth-and-1 at the St. Louis 43 to seal a 34-31 win over the Seahawks. The play caused Delisa to flash back to last season's Super Bowl, when her son was denied a similar opportunity. On second-and-1 from the Patriots' 1-yard line, the Seahawks elected to have Russell Wilson throw to Ricardo Lockette, even though Lynch had rumbled for 4 yards on the previous play.

FOR ONE SEAHAWKS fan, Pete Carroll's call that led to Russell Wilson throwing an interception in the end zone with 20 seconds left in Super Bowl 49 was a matter of life and death. At least that's what the obituary of 53-year-old Mike Vedvik said. The obit, which appeared in the Spokesman-Review newspaper in Spokane, Wash., was written in part by one of Mike's sisters. It gave all the obligatory "survived by" information before revealing an unusual cause of death. "We blame the Seahawks lousy play call for Mike's untimely demise," it read.

I THINK WE ALL can agree that Chip Kelly is a pretty good football coach. He proved that at the University of Oregon and has proved it again in his first 2 years with the Eagles, resuscitating a four-win team and racking up back-to-back 10-6 seasons. What we don't yet know, but are about to find out, is what kind of talent evaluator Kelly is. Many people assume that a good coach also is a good judge of football flesh. But the two don't necessarily go hand in hand. They're two very different jobs, two very different talents.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Love them or loathe them, the rowdy Seahawks will have first dibs on the NFC title for the foreseeable future. Yes, the Seahawks who started a fight during New England's victory formation at the end of the Super Bowl. Yes, the Seahawks who took two penalties at the game's end, and led the league in penalties this season. Yes, the disrespectful, disrespected Seahawks, whose bunker mentality and persecution complex make them a dangerous cell of football fanatics.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - The New England Patriots' quest for the fourth Super Bowl title of the Bill Belichick-Tom Brady era was sagging on the ropes, waiting for Marshawn Lynch to deliver the knockout blow. It was second-and-goal from just outside the Patriots' 1-yard line, Lynch - 24 carries, 102 yards - had just battered his way from the 5 to within a long, muscular-arm reach of the winning score. Or a short, battering-ram surge. Then it happened. Was it divine intervention - karmic repayment after two weeks of talk about deflated footballs?

PHOENIX - The confidence that helped Richard Sherman become one of the NFL's elite cornerbacks for the Seattle Seahawks was born in February 2009, when Sherman switched from offense to defense at Stanford. During the second practice of spring drills, Sherman became convinced he was the best cornerback on the field. Never mind that it was only his second day playing the position. He determined that such a mind-set was a requirement to play the position, and the bravado begot the production.

PHOENIX - The Seattle Seahawks know they're on the doorstep of doing something really special Sunday, even if they don't want to really acknowledge it until it happens. Super Bowl winners don't repeat in the salary-cap era. The Patriots put together two in a row, the most recent a decade ago. Before that, it was the John Elway Broncos, following the 1997 and '98 seasons. If the Seahawks win Super Bowl XLIX, they'll cement their domination of the current NFL landscape and put themselves on a level above recent champions such as the Ravens, Saints, Giants or Packers.
