The Seattle Seahawks players aren’t the only ones worthy of praise for their accomplishments this offseason – their head coach is as well. Over the weekend, coach Pete Carroll received an honorary doctorate degree from his alma mater, the University of the Pacific.

“I’m not quite sure how I feel about this,” Carroll joked. “They want to call me a doctor, but that might be a bit of a stretch.”

At Pacific, Carroll received his bachelor’s degree in business administration, his master’s in physical education and a secondary teaching credential. He spent two years as a free safety on the Pacific football team and later as a graduate assistant on the coaching staff.

“Go forth and don’t hold back,” Carroll said. “Make the most of it. Enjoy your time here, but go forth. That means putting in the hard work, the preparation, and the dedication it takes to get it done.”
