Carroll responds to NCAA sanctions

Pete Carroll responded to the NCAA sanctions handed down to USC like the new media magnate that he is: on Youtube and his personal website.

“I never thought there was any facts that supported these significant sanctions that were put forth,” Carroll said.  “The primary issue throughout the process was did the University know?  The University didn’t know, we didn’t know.  We were not aware of any of these findings.”

We’ll let Pete explain the rest

    IMO, he’s lying like a rug.

    In my best Jimmy Cagney impression…Yeah see!

  3. jshawaii says: Jun 10, 2010 6:40 PM

    and as the great Sgt. Shultz says. I see nothing, I hear nothing, nothing, nothing!

    The book will come later.

  5. ninjapleazee says: Jun 10, 2010 6:42 PM

    right…. you didn’t know but you jumped ship before it sank… stfu carroll, you’ve proven over and over again that you’re a liar

  6. zabam says: Jun 10, 2010 6:42 PM

    The primary issues are:
    1. Did the infractions occur?
    2. If yes, Did the university and team leadership know?
    3. If not – why not? Is the tail wagging the dog?

  7. jibfest says: Jun 10, 2010 6:42 PM

    Pete Carroll leaves and months after USC gets hit with sanctions. Anyone who fails to see the link, please see the link. Carroll is a dirtbag.

  8. pacificamike says: Jun 10, 2010 6:43 PM

    The University of Spoiled Children should have known, Pete. Not knowing is the definition of a “lack of institutional control”
    7-9 for the Seasucks this year

  9. Fire Ted says: Jun 10, 2010 6:44 PM

    If “the University didn’t know,” then there is a huge problem. If they knew, it’s an even bigger problem. This goes on at every major football and basketball program to some degree…some schools just do a better job of hiding it.

  10. stetai says: Jun 10, 2010 6:45 PM

    Well I guess we know why Carroll wanted to join an NFL team so bad this year.
    Good for you Carroll, you made it to “Mexico” scot-free with a trunk full of loot.

  11. Djaehne says: Jun 10, 2010 6:49 PM

    no matter how many times you say you don’t
    know about the events surrounding the violations, no one will ever believe you. I hope
    they come after you for all the bonus money
    you made and make you personally responsible
    for the entire event. You leaving USC is enough
    to state you knew exactly what was going on and
    what was coming. Turd!

  12. JMoney says: Jun 10, 2010 6:51 PM

    Thats why you ran like a little bitch!!!
    You are a cheater and a liar you built this program on lies and broke every rule then you bailed when the heat was on.
    Now everyone will remember how terrible a coach you really were and are. You took a superbowl contender in New England and ruined it. Atleast you cannot screw up the seahawks much worse!

  13. Bigike55 says: Jun 10, 2010 6:52 PM

    yea thats y u got the hell out of dodge

  14. this class sucks says: Jun 10, 2010 6:52 PM

    I see…

  15. DannyLaruso says: Jun 10, 2010 6:52 PM

    …and on a separate YouTube post, Pete Carroll can be seen flipping Kiffin the bird while cruising Seattle in a dump truck filled wit dolla’ bills y’all.
    Pal, Snoop Dogg, looks to be in the passenger seat sippin’ on gin & juice…but now wearing a Seachickens jersey.

  16. BigMikeSkinsFan says: Jun 10, 2010 6:59 PM

    thats why you left so quickly, aint it pete?
    you used to get offer after offer from the NFL and denied them but SUDDENLY you decided to jump ship this year.
    Reggie’s greed and disregard of the rules have made this group of kids/players suffer.

  17. Cincinnasty says: Jun 10, 2010 7:11 PM

    Pete seen this coming and dipped to the NFL… That’s all folks..

  18. John El Way says: Jun 10, 2010 7:16 PM

    *throws reggie under bus* lol

  19. irishgary says: Jun 10, 2010 7:16 PM

    what a piece of garbageand a liar He bailed because he knew this was coming.

  20. Occam says: Jun 10, 2010 7:18 PM

    “……it depends on what your definition of the word, “is” is………..errrr………….ummmm…………..”

  21. NFL4EVER says: Jun 10, 2010 7:25 PM

    No Pete, you didn’t know anything. You had a great young QB at USC to build around and you decided that NOW was the ideal time to go to the NFL and that traditional power known as the Seattle Seahawks, they of the aging roster.
    No, you didn’t know.

  22. The Black Cat says: Jun 10, 2010 7:46 PM

    Carroll says, “Haha!”

  23. 1nationraidernation says: Jun 10, 2010 7:50 PM

    sorry lame kiffin

  24. ItalianArmyGuy says: Jun 10, 2010 7:50 PM

    I also never did thought that learning basic English grammer wuz important fer college coaches or NFL coaches myself, coach
    So – despite your academic looking salt & pepper West coast hair and your smart-a$$ looking sunglasses, you are about as dumb as you act??
    You couldn’t mix in an English lesson while you were sleeping with those grad students in your Malibu condo?

  25. downwithdansnyder says: Jun 10, 2010 8:03 PM

    Yeh, right. What the F do you expect him to say? “I cheated to win all those college games so I could rebuild my shattered reputation and get a huge contract from an idiot Billionaire NFL owner”?

  26. 123456 says: Jun 10, 2010 8:15 PM

    Now everyone has learned the real reason why Pete Carroll left USC.

  27. contract says: Jun 10, 2010 8:16 PM

    Pete will be back in college coaching UCLA in 3 years.
    And cheating again.

  28. winkel33 says: Jun 10, 2010 8:24 PM

    We didn’t know is not an excuse. And if the NCAA really wanted to stop all the cheating that goes on in programs run by the Pete Carrolls and John Caliparis of the world, they would impose serious punishments and penalties on coaches of programs that violate the rules. How about a hefty fine per every game a team has to forfeit handed down to any coach, regardless of the claim of “we didn’t know.” Indifference cannot continue to be an excuse. If Carroll and CAlipari and all the others had to worry about themselves, u can bet they would make sure to know, and make sure to stop it. Instead, the NCAA does nothing and these coaches just go on with their lives, as if nothing happened.

  29. Citizen Strange says: Jun 10, 2010 8:25 PM

    “I never thought there was any facts …”
    He’s got that good USC education by osmosis.

  30. Slippyal2 says: Jun 10, 2010 8:33 PM

    My mom always said “once a cheater, always a cheater”

  31. slowfame says: Jun 10, 2010 8:38 PM

    Way to man up and take your punishment. Shows the true character of a man when he knew this was coming he took the first flight out. Now these players at USC must suffer because his coaching staff. And if his running back coach knew which its reported he did. Then USC knew.

  32. mattgso says: Jun 10, 2010 8:42 PM

    Perhaps Petey saw this coming and that’s why he left USC?

  33. VegasBronco says: Jun 10, 2010 8:48 PM

    Pete Pete Pete,
    So the NCAA is completely wrong about the facts!! Denial is the first step, huh!
    How could you and Mark Sanchez not know about what was going on at USC?

  34. schooney says: Jun 10, 2010 8:49 PM

    Hey Pete you lie, you were behind the entire process–hope USC sues you cheating ass

  35. JoeSixPack says: Jun 10, 2010 9:11 PM

    Seems like a solid defense by Carroll
    I’m not an expert in the law, but what I do know I learned from Mike Florio
    And I know that Ignorance is 9/10ths of the Law.

  36. DC_Bengals_Fan says: Jun 10, 2010 9:13 PM

    Yeah, right. Look, Pete for years had been linked to NFL jobs and he kept turning them down. Better jobs than where the Seahawks are at right now (no offense Hawks fans, just that you’re a little old at some skill positions).
    Then all of a sudden the rumors start swirling and Pete jumps. I knew then the crap was heading toward the fan when he took the Seattle job.
    Timing was too coincidental – right after the basketball team was hit and around the same time that investigations were launched against his team. He knew the NCAA was shining a light on USC.

  37. Shaen Ross says: Jun 10, 2010 9:39 PM

    Who oversees the NCAA infractions commitee?

  38. jersey73 says: Jun 10, 2010 9:44 PM


  39. seals says: Jun 10, 2010 9:46 PM

    Your Nose is growing Pete
    thinking its funny that his player stole the donuts shows you how he is as a person / coach.
    nice timing leaving USC, Cheater

  40. steveinohio says: Jun 10, 2010 9:58 PM

    I had no idea! The fact that I just left one of the best jobs in the country for a high turn over NFL job is just a cowinkidink.

  41. JackDiesel says: Jun 10, 2010 10:24 PM

    No wonder he got out of dodge. Let Kiffin take over the sinking ship. Karma’s a bitch, ain’t it Kiffin.

  42. BLeedGreeN4Life says: Jun 10, 2010 10:40 PM

    Bill Belicheck JR.

  43. jobob247 says: Jun 10, 2010 10:54 PM

    LOL @ slippery pete disabling comments for his youtube video. Couldn’t take the heat I see.

  44. irishgary says: Jun 10, 2010 11:07 PM

    carrol is a fag

  45. buckifan4life says: Jun 10, 2010 11:17 PM

    Slimey D-bag!
    We all knew they were cheating, It was too obvious…

  46. SamHam says: Jun 10, 2010 11:32 PM

    Those West Coast hookers always spill the beans..

  47. jersey73 says: Jun 10, 2010 11:49 PM

    Somewhere Al Davis is laughing at Lane Kiffin.

  48. The Scott Mitchell Report says: Jun 10, 2010 11:50 PM

    He also added via Twitter, “ZOMG can’t believe the NCAA is being sooooo lame!!”

  49. Massappeal says: Jun 10, 2010 11:58 PM

    Will Carroll come under the NFL personal conduct policy……..lying while being a head coach.

  50. FumbleNuts says: Jun 11, 2010 12:55 AM

    Who cares?

  51. jahmic says: Jun 11, 2010 5:11 AM

    In his defense, there were rumors months before he left that USC was going to be hit. So, it’s not like he some secret knowledge.
    That said, I’m not saying he didn’t know or wasn’t involved, but this wasn’t a secret just out days ago.

  52. Sunchaser says: Jun 11, 2010 7:04 AM

    Now that USC has been spanked by the NCAA and another former college FB coach denies any wrong doing, who wants to take bet’s on the next program that will be under the microscope?

  53. tombrookshire says: Jun 11, 2010 8:55 AM

    Lessons learned from American politicians, Deny Everything!

  54. tickintimebomb says: Jun 11, 2010 8:59 AM

    Can’t say I’m too upset to see USC go down. Its just a little bit of justice for all of the crookedness that is college football. From the NCAA to the BCS… its all a croc of SH#T.

  55. JoseOle says: Jun 11, 2010 9:52 AM

    There is a difference in knowing and not wanting to know anything. In this case I don’t think Petey asked any questions so he could deny any knowledge.
    USC got what it deserved. I think if there is an investigation and the player won’t comply to actually answering questions then the school should be hit automatically. What did Bush have to hide? Apparently everything.

  56. Jack Acid says: Jun 11, 2010 12:01 PM

    Carroll is a lying, cheating scumbag.
    But I’m even more sickened he’s allowed to waltz into an NFL job unscathed.
