ESPN's C. Mortensen: Pete Carroll to Seattle expected to happen; J.A. Adande says it's a 'done deal'

Update: J.A. Adande says he has inside knowledge that it's a a done deal. Not totally confirmed yet though. Might as well talk about the rumor (I emphasize 'rumor'), considering it's the hottest sports story today and it affects everyone in the Pac-10. 'League sources tell ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen that the Seahawks are targeting longtime USC coach Pete Carroll as Mora's replacement. Carroll did not return messages, but a league source said Carroll is interested in the job and is trying to persuade Trojans offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates to join him in Seattle, as opposed to Bates pursuing the same position with the Chicago Bears. Said another source close to Carroll: "You're about to see a big headline that shakes up the major college football word," in reference to the Seahawks' development. The Seahawks did not confirm Carroll as a leading candidate but also did not deny it.'
