Friday Round-Up: Pete Carroll Receives Honorary Degree From USC

A daily link round-up of what's "out there" about your Seattle Seahawks


Good afternoon, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Friday, May 15 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Fight On, Pete Carroll

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll was on site at USC today to receive an honorary degree from the school he coached to two national championships. He was one of six recipients in this year's class.

Here's a snippet on the Seattle coach from USC's commencement site:

Carroll returned USC football to national prominence during his nine-year tenure as head coach at the university. His "Always Compete" philosophy has led to a successful four-decade career in football. Carroll is one of just a few coaches in football history to have won a Super Bowl and a national college championship. He is also the founder of A Better LA and A Better Seattle, two gang-violence prevention and community-building organizations that empower inner-city youth and forge relationships with service organizations.

Today's 'Tweet of the Day' comes from Seattle mayor Ed Murray, who shares of photo of himself with Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett on 'Bike To Work Day.'

We learned yesterday that running back Robert Turbin had surgery on his hip this offseason. He's expected to be ready for the 2015 season.

The Seahawks signed defensive tackle T.Y. McGill on Friday, making him the fifth rookie minicamp tryout to sign in Seattle.

Jayson Jenks at the Seattle Times says defensive end Frank Clark's size and speed gives the Seahawks' pass rush options.

Terry Blount at says Eric Pinkins is hoping to find his niche at linebacker.

And one staff writer at labels the Max Unger-for-Jimmy-Graham trade the most-impactful move of the NFL offseason.
