Bill is a former high school coach in Illinois at Weber High School in Chicago, Fenwick High School in Oak Park and Saint George High School in Evanston.  Carsley enjoyed a long career as a lawyer with the city of Chicago before his retirement in 2009.  Bill was the former chairperson of the Chicago Bar Association Sports Law Committee and a  long-time Cubs, Bears, DePaul, and Northwestern Football season ticket holder  Prior to his law career, Bill was granted an honorable discharge from the U.S. Army.  Carsley also worked in the sports departments at the Chicago Tribune, Chicago American (later The Chicago Today) and City News Bureau.  Bill still continues his passion for writing writing as he is a frequent contributor to the Letters to the Editor in the Chicago daily newspapers.  As a big supporter of his alma mater, DePaul University, where he earned his Bachelors, Masters, and Law Degrees, Bill was enshrined into the university's Hall of Fame in 2008 for his never ending contributions to the athletic programs.    Since the Blue Demons entry into the Big East in 2006, Bill has attended every game of the Big East Tournament in Madison Square Garden -- including every second of the legendary six overtime quarterfinal between UConn and Syracuse in 2009.  When not running out to a basketball game, Carsley has been an accomplished runner, as he ran across Ireland with the Niles West Oakton Running Club during the fall of 2004.  Bill has attended the
Super Bowl eleven times in  1970, 1971, 1972, 1973, 1974, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1979, 1986 and the Summer Olympic Games in 1976, 1984, 1996.
