Seahawks Football Coach Jim Mora was fired today. His prime parking spot was still in front of Seattle Seahawks headquarters Friday night. The Seahawks fired Mora after just one season earlier in the day and speculation on Mora’s replacement immediately centered on Carroll, the charismatic Southern California coach.

There’s reason to believe that one with Pete Carroll’s name on it could soon take its place.

The Los Angeles Times reported that Seahawks chief executive officer Tod Leiweke flew to California before firing Mora to interview Carroll for the job. The newspaper said that Seattle is believed to be offering Carroll a five-year contract worth $7 million per season to be its president and coach.

That would be a raise of more than $2 million annually on what Carroll is believed to be earning at USC.

This is a very sad day for Jim Mora.
