    i think the ability to turn lead into gold would be the only thing that gets pete away from SC

    I personally see Pete as the HC of USC for a long time.

    He tried the NFL once, and failed miserably, why bother trying again?

    Life changing money

    Would you turn down 30-40 million, I know he's making like 2.5 mill but still why take 15 years to make what you can make in 5 and then live off that?

    Maybe 21 can send Luca over to Petey's office to make him an offer he can't refuse.

    2.5 per annum and USC makes me as happy as can be...
    30-40 million in half the time comes with more preening egos, more pressure, owners who will cut your legs out from underneath you ... and what the hell am I thinking of ... burned out in Boston, Burned out in the Big Apple. Don't want to burn out in my hometown..

    Actually, he tried twice. He was the head coach of the Jets in 1994 (6-10), then was the head coach of the Pats 1997-1999 (27-21, 1-2 in the playoffs)--and we know what happened to the Pats right after he left. Made Belichick look like a genius...after Belichick had gone 36-44 in 5 years with the Browns.

    Bills second to last season in Cleveland they were 11-5, the following season they started off 3-0 before modell announced the move.
    He was just starting to get the team he wanted, that team was finally going somewhere.
    Oh well, I still think its wishfull thinking to think Petey is going anywhere.

    It seems to me that what this guy is really great at does not translate to the NFL. Recruiting.

    He's a very good defensive coach and is smart enough to hand the offense over to a mastermind. But what he is truly great at is convincing 18-year old boys to move to LA to play football for him. The talent the guy has brought to the University for Spoiled Children is really mind-boggling. You have to hand it to him. With the cast of players he has assembled, even mediocre coaching would get them a lot of wins.

    But that won't help him a lick in the NFL. I don't know whether the ownership of the 49ers sees it that way, or whether Petey himself understands that, but if both sides are smart, they won't be tempted to assume his USCum success equates to NFL ability. It would be dumb of the 49ers and fatally egotistical of Petey. It didn't work for 'genius' Steve Spurrier, or 'big-winner' Dennis Erikson or 'boy genius' Butch Davis ...and it wouldn't work for pretty boy Petey.

    Tel you what, if I had the choice between $2.5M per year and $7.5M per year, I could definitely put up with the egos, pressure, and cut-throat bosses for the extra $5M per annum...no doubt.

    Because leaving a legacy includes suceeding in the NFL to him. Its not always about money.

    Uh, did you miss the part about the extra $5M per year for 4-5 years? I'd move to the North fucking Pole for 5 years for an extra $5M a year...
