Continued: Souhan: Seahawks' Carroll learned much from Grant, but not stoicism

Carroll says he owes it all to Grant.

“Bud is an amazing man,” Carroll said. “His confidence that he exudes, going with what he believes, in his gut, was extraordinary to me — to see the calm and the commitment that he had to do what he felt was right in his mind.

“He didn’t care what anybody else thought and he was really clear about how he expressed that. He talked that way and he taught me that. He lived that way.”

If Carroll wins the Super Bowl on Sunday, Grant figures to hear from him. Carroll might even get him to crack a smile.
