Two of the biggest names in football over the past two decades have been Pete Carroll and Bill Belichick. Carroll has had success in college and the NFL, while Belichick has been one of the greatest coaches to ever coach in the NFL. So, with both of these guys being around for so long, and with both of them having so much success, does Carroll or Belichick the higher net worth?
Bill Belichick and his dominance with the New England Patriots
From 1991 through 1995, Belichick was the head coach of the Cleveland Browns, and his teams struggled. The Browns went 6-10 in 1991, and 7-9 in both 1992 and 1993. In 1994, however, the Browns went 11-5 and went to the Divisional Round of the playoffs, but the team then went 5-11 in 1995.
The 1995 season was Belichick’s last season with the Browns. However, in 2000 he started coaching the New England Patriots, where he became one of the greatest coaches of all-time.
After going 5-11 in Belichick’s first season, the Patriots turned it around and went 11-5 in 2001. They then went on to win the Super Bowl that season too.
Since then, the Patriots have not had one losing season. They have also only missed the playoffs twice since then. In total during the Belichick era, the Patriots have gone to nine Super Bowls, winning six of them, and they have played in 13 AFC Championship Games.
Belichick has a 237-83 overall record with the Patriots.
Pete Carroll has found success at the collegiate level and in the NFL
Pete Carroll was first a head coach of the New York Jets in 1994, and they went 6-10, but then he coached the New England Patriots from 1997 through 1999. The Patriots did not have one losing season in those seasons, and they went to the playoffs in two of those seasons. Carroll was actually the last Patriots head coach before Belichick.
Then in 2001, Carroll became the head coach at USC.
After going 6-6 in 2001, USC went 11-2 and won the Orange Bowl in the 2002 season. Then in 2003, the Trojans went 12-1, won the Rose Bowl, and shared the national championship title with LSU, according to the NCAA.
In 2004, though, the Trojans were absolutely dominant. They went 13-0 and won the BCS National Championship, but the title was ultimately stripped due to NCAA violations, according to The New York Times. USC then continued its dominance in 2005 as the Trojans went 12-1 but lost in the BCS National Championship Game to Texas.
USC still won with Carroll during the next few seasons, going 11-2 in 2006 and 2007, 12-1 in 2008, and 9-4 in 2009. In 2010, though, Carroll returned to the NFL to coach the Seattle Seahawks, where he has been at since.
After the Seahawks went 7-9 in each of his first two seasons in Seattle, the team has not had a losing record since. The Seahawks have also only missed the playoffs twice since 2010, and they went to back-to-back Super Bowls during the 2013 and 2014 seasons, winning it all during the 2013 season.
Carroll was 97-19 at USC, and he is 100-59-1 with the Seahawks.
Does Pete Carroll or Bill Belichick have a higher net worth?
So, both Carroll and Belichick have had immense success as head football coaches. Which one is worth more money, though? Their net worth numbers are actually very close.
Bill Belichick has the higher net worth of the two as he is worth an estimated $35 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. Pete Carroll, though, is right behind him, as his net worth is an estimated $30 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Carroll and Belichick have both been very successful in their careers. That has ultimately paid off big time for both of them.
