ESPN on Coach Carroll

and the people who watch USC see a coach having more fun than anyone else in his profession. Everything about him on game day says, 'Wow, this is great!' Everything about him the other six days of the week suggests that he can allow a little levity into the deadly serious business of coaching football.

'He's a great coach to be around,' defensive tackle Shaun Cody said. 'When it's time to work, he's going to work. And when it's time to have fun, he'll have fun.'
and this one:
"In every game, he's always out there jumping around, coaching his heart out, really enthusiastic," said defensive tackle Mike Patterson. "We love him as players because he's the type of coach you want to play hard for every time. You'd hate to let him down."
Sounds like my college basketball coach and mentor, Coach Steve Ridder at Embry-Riddle - just the guy you want to play for, or have your son play for (hint hint Riley Dane!).
