USC Trojans football team head coach Pete Carroll is on the news lately after being accused by Charlie Weis, the dismissed head coach of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team, of having an affair with a graduate student in Malibu, California. In a recent interview, when asked to compare media treatment between him and Carroll, he was quoted saying â€œYou could bet that if I were living with a grad student here in South Bend, it would be national news. [Carroll] doing it in Malibu and itâ€™s not national newsâ€.
Carroll has denied the allegations and Weiss on his part has explained that his statement about Pete Carroll with a grad student was a total misunderstanding. He said he was just stating an example of a rumor that can actually destroy anyoneâ€™s image.
