Pete showed interest in sports from his childhood. He attended Redwood High School at Larkspur, but because of his lack of weight at only 110 pounds (50kg) he needed a doctor’s approval to play football – Peter subsequently played wide receiver, quarterback or defensive back. Besides football, Pete also played basketball and baseball which led him to receive an award for Athlete of the year.
Carroll enrolled at the College of Marin and played football there for two years, after which he transferred to the University of the Pacific, and played there for the Tigers for two years, receiving All-Pacific Coast Athletic Conference honors in 1971 and 1972.

Carroll was noticed by his head coach Chester Caddas, who offered him a job as a graduate assistant on his staff at Pacific, which he accepted, and served three years, working with the wide-receivers and secondary defenders. After graduation at Pacific, Carrol was hired by the University of Arkansas in 1977 and spent the season as a graduate assistant, making $182 a month coaching Razorbacks who won the 1978 Orange Bowl.
