Former head coach at USC
Carroll was the head coach at USC during the Reggie Bush scandal and was one of the USC officials who appeared in front of the NCAA Committee about the infractions. Bush, a Heisman Trophy winner, was found to have accepted improper benefits. As a result, the NCAA placed major sanctions on the school including a two-year bowl ban, elimination of 30 football scholarships, and forfeiture of the last two wins of the 2004 season as well as all of its wins in the 2005 season. Carroll had already accepted a job as head coach of the Seattle Seahawks, safe from college jurisdictions.
