CHARLIE WEIS REPORTEDLY THROWS PETE CARROLL AND HIS MISTRESS RIGHT UNDER THE BUS

CHARLIE WEIS AND PETE CARROLL

Fired Notre Dame football coach Charlie Weis has already been embarrassed nationally after losing his job. He apparently wants company.

Weis complained to the editor of a Notre Dame fan website that he received national criticism for swearing while USC head coach Pete Carroll got a free pass for commiting adultery. Weis told Tom Prister of Irishillustrated.com:

“Let me ask you this question: You guys know about things that go on in different places. Was I living with a grad student in Malibu, or was I living with my wife in my house? You could bet that if I were living with a grad student here in South Bend, it would be national news. He’s doing it in Malibu and it’s not national news. What’s the difference? I don’t understand. Why is it okay for one guy to do things like that, but for me, I’m scrutinized when I swear. I’m sorry for swearing; absolve my sins.”

Beautiful! And, the interview is on tape.

The story was instantly picked up by the L.A. Times.

USC FOOTBALL COACH PETE CARROLL

Not surprising: USC football coach Pete Carroll is the highest paid employee of any university in the United States of America.

Surprising: He’s the only college football or basketball coach in the top ten.

Today’s New York Times has an article on a study done by The Chronicle of Higher Education. It found, not surprisingly, that Carroll made $4,415,714 at USC in 2007. The second highest paid person working for any American college turns out to be a dermatology professor at Columbia. Third is a an employee of Emory University followed by the Dean of the Penn medical school and a Cornell professor.
