Pete Carroll on his quarterback and trying to repeat

The NFL’s annual owner’s meetings are taking place in Orlando this week, and on Wednesday Pete Carroll met with reporters for a bit.

One topic that came up was the play of quarterback Russell Wilson, and how he can get even better in 2014. You can watch video of that conversation here.

Carroll also talked quite a bit about how his team can maintain success even after some offseason changes. Back when he was building a successful program at USC, Carroll asked legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden about staying on top, and got this advice: “He said, ‘Coach, you don’t change your philosophy; the players change.’ That’s my feeling now. You either have your philosophy or you don’t. You stay with what you believe in, you bring it to light as creative as you can. The philosophy never changes—sometimes the look of it changes, because the players change. The players will become more in tune to what’s expected of them. I think that’s how this works. We’ll see.”
