Pete Carroll Was The Enemy, Now, Carroll Is His coach.

Published on May 13, 2010 by     

During Golden Tate’s three years at Dame, Pete Carroll was the enemy. Now, Carroll is his coach.

“He’s great actually,” Tate said Monday night while signing autographs for fans at an organized appearance. “I like him a lot. He’s a very upbeat guy who’s down to earth, likes to have fun.”

Carroll also likes to win. And he’s used to it. But his new team isn’t. The Seattle Seahawks’ offense struggled mightily last season, and Carroll and company are looking to Tate to help change that.

“I think it worked out,” Tate said. “It’s a great situation for me to go into. I think I’m going to have a chance to perform hopefully, and make some plays.”

That’s exactly what he did late last month at the Seahawks’ rookie minicamp. Offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates said Tate was “very impressive.”

“I think it went really well,” Tate said. “The coaches were excited about me. Coach Carroll is big on being competitive, and that’s what makes me me, is I’m a very competitive guy. So any time I can get out there and be competitive, it’s great for myself and the team.”

The competition is on a whole new level now, but Tate couldn’t be more excited to be part of the NFL.

“I’m in the locker room with grown men now,” Tate said. “These guys have families and kids, and this is how they support their families. So I’ve got to understand that I can’t take this for granted and I’ve got to come out every day and work hard.”
