Pete Carroll got bruise on face returning kickoff during practice
You may have noticed during the Super Bowl that Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll had a mark on the left side of his face and appeared to have a bruise. If you were wondering how Carroll got it, he answered that after the game. And it’s a pretty funny story.
Carroll was asked by FOX Sports’ Peter Shrager about the bruise on his face and explained that the wound came at practice during the week.
“Well I did get hit returning a kickoff in practice this week. I jumped in to give Percy a break, trying to do the right thing, and Derrick Coleman grabs me and (Chris) Maragos comes in and gives me a shot in the head,” Carroll said.
Though Carroll was marked up, he had a good attitude about it.
“Hey, we covered kicks like wildmen tonight, so it was OK. If I contributed to that in any way, I’ll take the hit.”
At least Carroll will now have photos from the biggest moment of his coaching career to remind him of what a nut job he is. An awesome nut job, that is.
