Are we finally on the backstretch of the Pete Carroll Era at Southern Cal?
According to a brief one-sentence post on the Los Angeles Daily News‘ USC blog, we certainly are. This is what Trojans beat writer Scott Wolf posted earlier this evening:
“Pete Carroll turned in his resignation to USC, according to sources.”
Those were the only details given by Wolf at this time, but we’ll almost certainly hear something “official” at some point tomorrow, from either Carroll himself or from the university. Or from Carroll’s new employers, the Seattle Seahawks.
Now that the resignation cat is out of the bag, none of the parties involved have much of a choice.
UPDATE 10:41 p.m. ET: USCFootball.com, a Rivals.com website devoted to covering USC football — duh! — is also reporting that Carroll handed in his resignation Sunday evening. Like the Daily News report noted above, there are no additional details available at this time.
