Pete Carroll's USC Move Broken Down by Star WR

6/14/2010 1:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

T.J. Houshmandzadeh -- star wide receiver for the Seattle Seahawks -- thinks his new head coach Pete Carroll made a smart move by leaving USC in January because it's smart to "get out while the house is burning."

As you may have heard, SC was just hit with a hardcore punishment for some bad stuff that went on with the football program during Carroll's reign.

Carroll has denied any wrongdoing and claimed that his move was "not in any way" related to NCAA sanctions  -- but T.J.'s comment seems to imply that his new head coach knew SC was in some serious trouble ... and that's why he jumped ship.

@ Professor Obvious...



because the sports programs in college bring in more revenue than you can imagine. Without sports programs, a lot of universities would be nothing more than empty buildings.

Is fleeing the scene of a crime sort of like admitting there might be a problem?

Idiot!    

Of course he left. He, along with the worst AD in the NCAA, Mike Garrett, ran a dishonest & corrupt program for years. Then, after he'd turned his back on players taking money from agents, in direct violation of NCAA rules, he skipped town just ahead of the NCAA kicking SC's ass for it's unethical & illegal behavior, to move back to the NFL where he could do exactly what he did at SC without having to worry about those pesky rules & needing to be ethical & honest.

TJ, you're a typical dumbass football player. You should think before opening your mouth. Coach Carroll's going to make life tough for you if you're not cut. What an idiot!

Leave it to the media to read too far into a Black man's comment. In no way did he imply anything.
