Pete Carroll has confirmed the completion of his new book, They Call Me Cheat.
It includes a Forward by the face of USC, OJ Simpson, who was delighted to attend Pete's practices and took time off from tracking down Ron & Nicole's killer to work this up. The Forward has the inviting title, "If You Did It."
Special features include Pete's Pyramid of Suck-cess (thanks, tasser10), his motivational sayings (samples below), and interviews with key members of his support team (Mike Garrett and Senora Ross). A photo gallery brings to life each of America's Sweethearts who Pete has contributed (money) to: Bush-Kardashian, Leinert-Hilton, Maualuga-Andrews, and Sanchez-Complainant.
