Pete Carroll says he actually cried over his Super Bowl fail but he’s still defending his decision to pass on that infamous play from the goal line.

“I never make a call thinking it’s gonna go bad,” Carroll said “This was properly planned. It just didn’t turn out well.”

As for the tears, Carroll says he was hit with a wave of emotion around 4:05 AM the next day and just let it all out.

When Lauer asked if the play was the worst call ever Carroll replied, “It was the worst result of a call ever. The call woulda been a great one if we caught it.”

Carroll noted that things like this stick with him and never go away but they also fuel him to do better.
