Carroll USC coach Pete Carroll has been on the field this spring getting the Trojans ready for the 2009 season.

In the spring of 2010, he might be at bookstore near you.

The Portfolio imprint of Penguin Group (USA) announced today that it would publish "Win Forever" by the USC coach.

The release from the publisher said: " 'Win Forever' will include previously untold details and anecdotes about USC football, as well as Coach Carroll's advice for building teams that stick together and consistently outperform expectations.  He will also discuss leadership off the field, based on his charitable work with kids on the toughest streets of L.A.  And he will show how the five principles of the 'Win Forever' philosophy can be applied to any kind of endeavor." 

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the book will be donated to A Better L.A., a nonprofit that Carroll helped start to reduce gang violence in Los Angeles.
