(1090 The Fan) — It’s no secret that Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll and San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh aren’t “best buds.” While neither man has come out and significantly verbally attacked the other in front of the press, it’s been widely known that the two have not been fond of each other dating back to their days as coaches for USC and Stanford, respectively.
Hall of Fame quarterback and local icon Warren Moon went on the DA Show with Damon Amendolara on Thursday to further clarify that the rivalry between Carroll and Harbaugh is very real and “exactly the same” as the animosity between former NFL coaches Jerry Glanville and Sam Wyche.
“Those two guys didn’t like each other,” Moon told Amendolara. “They threw words around a lot. Now, Pete and Jim have been more cordial. They try to respect each other as coaches, but I’m sure those two guys don’t go out and have a beer together.”
Moon said the AFC in the 80s and early 90s was so competitive — particularly between Moon’s Houston Oilers and the Cincinnati Bengals — because of the trash-talking that happened between Glanville and Wyche.
“I think (the trash talk) made it a little bit more special when we played the Cincinnati Bengals just because there was a little bit more chirping, a little bit more pushing and shoving and all that type of stuff,” Moon said. “But Sam Wyche and Jerry Glanville, there’s no question there was no love lost between those two guys – and it rubbed off onto the football field with the players.”
