Pete doesn't seem like the Joe Paterno-type. He's not going to stay in one place forever. When he senses he has reached his peak, he'll find some other project. Typical career-minded human being.

Any other American who got a job offer
1) to make more money
2) obtain a promotion
3) take on a 'dream job'

would be foolish to pass it up.

Don't forget the Dave Watson scandal that is just starting to come out as well as the Reggie Bush and Joe Mc(Fumble)Knight scandals as well. There are probably MANY more scandals that will soon come out as well. Pete knew what was going down and just like all the other usc cowards, exited out the back door and will allow someone else to clean up the mess. Maybe Mike Garrett will hire somone with some integrity...NOT!!! Look at his most recent hires, Pete Carroll (football), Tim Floyd (Basketball) and Chad Kreuter (Baseball), all of them have no integrity at all.

Fvck off usc!!!

As hard as it is for me to see Pete go. I do understand why. Money talks, just like any other job. Although personally I would have stayed with USC for one simple fact. Whether you want to admit it or not, USC football is Los Angeles Football. There's no Pro Team and Pete made it into the ultimate star program in the city. Tickets for a USC game cost just as much as a NFL game now a days. Pete is basically a football god of sorts with Los Angeles, unless you just flat out hate USC.(UCLA fans). He did LOTS of charity work within the city and really made it into a less violent area. I don't know who will replace him, but whoever it is has some HUGE shoes to fill. Also, I hate to write it but recent history has proven itself over and over again. I think Pete's more of a college coach, not a pro coach. I know he's coached pro before, but it's been over 10 years since he has and the players aren't going to respond to him like they do in college. Good luck Pete, in one way I hope you succeed, but in another I hope you don't and make a return back to USC, where you belong:)

Thanks for 9 exciting years of USC football Pete. It will be hard to fill your shoes. Maybe "Reality Check" will get hired, he sounds like he knows everything.

Take off your blinders "King of Kornblum". We already know about the usc basketball program and the self imposed sanctions. Chad Kreuter does not honor any scholarship he gives to his players, that is his players are leaving as well. And if you want to read a bit more about your "GOD" Pete Carroll from the two links below you will understand why the trojans are in ruins. Yeah, the past nine years may have been exciting, but if every college coach cheated like Petey boy did, the games would have been much more competitive wouldn't they? It's OK, usc is going down and it will take MANY years for them to recoup.

It must be a horrible life to spend all of your time worrying about what USC is doing or not doing. To hate a school that bad must be so time consuming. I hope you get a life soon and put some of that energy into much more important matters......like life issues!!! I am a huge USC fan and could care less about UCLA or what they are doing or not doing (except when we play them and then I just want to beat them!). I hope that your hatred for USC and their fans doesn't bring you high blood pressure....it is the silent killer you know!! Hope you get a hobby that helps you chill out......FIGHT ON!!!!

If you figure out how to spell AP, look them up...and don't forget to read the part where they pulled themselves out of one of the gerrymandered formulas the BCS used to ensure SEC teams get in. The year of the co-champions, USC would have been #1 in the Coaches Poll too, had they not ceded their right to voice their own champion, as opposed to taking the winner of the mis-matched LSU-OU game.

Just another proponent of the "Big Lie"...keep on repeating in, and others will start to believe it.
