Patriots beat Ravens in Pete Carroll’s likely finale

FOXBOROUGH - Pete Carroll will have a breakup meeting with his players this morning and also meet with the Patriots’ management team later in the day. The speculation is that Carroll will come out of the meetings without his head coaching job, and that he’s headed to either the Washington Redskins or the Seattle Seahawks to be an assistant head coach and defensive coordinator.

His replacement was thought to be former Patriots assistant Bill Belichick, but people close to Jets head coach Bill Parcells said last night they expect him to retire today, handing the Jets job to Belichick. The Jets and the Patriots both finished 8-8 with wins yesterday, the Patriots taking a 20-3 victory over the Baltimore Ravens before a crowd of 50,263. New England finished in last place in the AFC East, however, because of a poorer division record.
