Pete Carroll apparently knows his way around a piano.

Mike Morgan learned that first-hand more than a decade ago when was being recruited by his future coach as an All-American linebacker at Dallas’ Skyline High School. Morgan would go on to play under Carroll for five years at USC before joining the Seahawks as an undrafted rookie in 2011, which makes this their 11th season together.

So Morgan has plenty of Carroll stories, including one he shared Thursday night on “Seahawks Weekly” about the time the coach and several USC assistants made a recruiting visit to his home in Dallas. Carroll pulled out all the stops, bringing along Ken Norton Jr., Steve Sarkisian, Lane Kiffin and “pretty much the entire staff.”

Once there, he showed off his musical chops.

“We had a piano in the house. We still have it,” Morgan recalled. “Coach Carroll, he’s like, ‘Ohhh, you got a piano here?’ He comes up to the piano and just plays a little somethin’ somethin’. I can’t remember exactly what it was that he played, but he played something and he won my parents over from there.”

So Carroll must have nailed it, right?

“Yeah,” Morgan said, “it was great.”

You can watch the full interview with Morgan from “Seahawks Weekly” in the video above (the Carroll story begins at 9:28). The entire show can be found here.
