On this date: Happy birthday, Pete

A look at some memorable moments in Seahawks history that occurred on Sept. 15:

1951 – Coach Pete Carroll is born in San Francisco. After stints in the NFL and college football, Carroll became the eighth head coach in Seahawks history when he was hired on Jan. 11, 2010.

1985 – Dave Krieg throws a club-record five touchdown passes and Daryl Turner catches a club-record four TD passes in a wild 49-35 victory over the Chargers in San Diego. The Seahawks need it all, as Dan Fouts passes for 440 yards and four TDs and Wes Chandler catches 13 passes for 243 yards for the Chargers. The Chargers generate 557 yards of total offense, the Seahawks 489.

2002 – In the first regular-season game at CenturyLink Field/Seahawks Stadium, the Seahawks lose to the Cardinals 24-13. Thomas Jones paces the Cardinals with 173 rushing yards, including a 58-yard TD run, to offset a 10-catch, 174-yard performance by Darrell Jackson.
