Seahawks coach Pete Carroll is going to his first Super Bowl as a head coach, but he’s no stranger to bowl games. Carroll was 7-2 in postseason games while the head coach at Southern Cal, including 1-1 in BCS national championship games.
“I’ve been to a lot of bowl games and it kind of seems very similar,” Carroll said. “You can’t have a better proving ground, I think, in terms of the process of it.”
Carroll said one big difference is preparation time for most college bowls, compared to two weeks for the Super Bowl.
“Some [college bowl games], you get a month,’’ he said. “It’s like a whole spring practice, so you get more time. We’ll be there [in New Jersey/New York] for a week [for the Super Bowl]. But I think our guys are pretty comfortable with that and we’ll be OK.”
It will be interesting to see how Carroll holds his own against John Fox in his first big dance. One thing is for sure, it will be a little different for Pete but not too much different than the BCS National Championship.
