Pete Carroll won't be sharing details of his conversation with running back Marshawn Lynch, the Seattle Seahawks coach told reporters in Glendale, Ariz., on Monday.
Carroll said on Sunday that he would talk to Lynch about the NFL's warning against making obscene gestures during Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday. Lynch has been fined twice for grabbing his crotch to celebrate touchdowns in recent games, and the NFL will reportedly penalize the Seahawks running back 15 yards if he makes any similar gestures on Sunday.
Carroll, asked what he told Lynch about gestures, says "you'll never know, sorry. I will never answer that question.''— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) January 26, 2015

On Sunday, Carroll said he thought Lynch was "going to have a great Super Bowl week."
Carroll also discussed cornerback Richard Sherman's comments regarding the NFL's investigation into the New England Patriots' Deflategate scandal. On Sunday, Sherman responded "probably not" when asked if he thought the Patriots would be punished for allegedly under-inflating footballs during last weekend's AFC Championship Game. Sherman cited the reportedly strong friendship between NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
Carroll on Sherman's comments about Goodell-Kraft: "That's Richard's opinion.'' Says they talk about everything so they'll talk about it.— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) January 26, 2015
But says "whether I talk to him about it or not, he is still going to have an opinion.''— Bob Condotta (@bcondotta) January 26, 2015
