End of An Era
Three legendary football coaches are out in the span of a day.
Earlier this morning, wrote about the retirement of Nick Saban, the consensus greatest coach in the history of major college football. The news has just broken that his longtime friend Bill Belichick, the consensus greatest coach in the history of professional football, is out at the New England Patriots.
While not quite on the same level, news broke yesterday afternoon that Pete Carroll is out as the coach of the NFL’s Seattle Seahawks, where he had won a Super Bowl and came one dumb play call away from winning another. And he had also won two college championships at USC.
Talk about the end of an era. Three of the greatest coaches in the history of the sport are out within a span of less than 24 hours.
