Miami Dolphins tight end Jordan Cameron could attribute a lot of his NFL success to his former college head coach. Who happens to be Pete Carroll.
From 2008-2009 Carroll coached Cameron at USC. Speaking with reporters ahead of Sunday’s game, Cameron had this to say about his former head coach.
"“I never thought I’d be playing football ever again after high school,” Cameron said. “Long story short, he’s the reason I’m playing now. He recruited me. I guess he has a lot to do with my whole career. It’s going to be cool playing against him. I played against him my rookie year, so I’m familiar with it and I know he’s going to get those guys right and they’re going to be ready to roll.” via MiamiDolphins.com"
Cameorn has not looked very good this pre-season but the Seahawks haven’t exactly seen anything good out of Jimmy Graham.
In a twist of irony each of the team’s top tight-ends are from opposite sides of the country. Cameron went to school at USC and Graham went to college at Miami University.
