From a Seattle Times transcript of today’s Pete Carroll press conference on the firing of Jeremy Bates.
Q: You worked with him for a year at USC. Did something change from then?
Carroll: “I just think in time, I’m just going to say it this way, this is the best way to say it: I wasn’t able to get us really going in the same direction the way I wanted to. And I didn’t feel like I would be able to do that so I had to go ahead and make a change.”
