No deal yet for Seahawks, Carroll

Monday, January 11, 2010

SEATTLE -- The Seattle Seahawks are in Los Angeles trying to make Pete Carroll their next coach -- while lining up interviews to find their next general manager.

Seahawks chief executive officer Tod Leiweke spent Sunday in California. A team spokesman says his talks with the charismatic coach of Southern California may go into today.

The Seahawks still do not have an agreement despite widespread reports, but are closing in on a deal for Carroll's return to the NFL, according to a league official with direct knowledge of Seattle's coaching search. The official requested anonymity because the team isn't detailing the search.

ESPN reported that former Tennessee Titans GM Floyd Reese will interview for Seattle's GM job. He will join New York Giants personnel man Marc Ross, Green Bay executive John Schneider and Omar Khan, a contract administrator with Pittsburgh.
