Coach Carroll Answers More Questions Via Twitter


Last May, Pete Carroll fielded questions from his followers on Twitter. Yesterday, he did the same.

"Who’s got questions? How bout some football questions?"

If you have a Twitter account, be sure to follow Carroll; at the very least, he is quite entertaining. Opportunities to ask the coach questions have been random and rare, but a few fortunate followers received answers.

Here is a dialogue of yesterday’s question and answer session:

It will be interesting to see if Pete Carroll can find success in the National Football League. Either way, it should continue to be an interesting experiment for Seahawks fans.
