[UPDATEx3] Weis Calls Out Petey For Living With A Grad Student In Malibu (Instead Of His Wife)

From an interview by Tim Prister, Senior Editor, which was posted on

Q: Is it frustrating to you Pete Carroll, for example, portrayed in one way…
CW: 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.

Was this story out in LA's traditional media before? Would LA's traditional media make a big deal out of this if this story involved Rick Neuheisel?


UPDATE: From Petey's website (HT Patroclus):

He was born on Sept. 15, 1951 in San Francisco. He and his wife, Glena, who played volleyball at Pacific, have 3 children: sons Brennan, 30, who played tight end at Pittsburgh (he previously played at Delaware) and is now an assistant at USC, and Nate, 21, a junior at USC, and daughter Jaime, 26, who played on the Women of Troy's highly-ranked volleyball team which competed in the 2000 NCAA Final Four.

Let's make something clear. Don't think it is cool to speculate on someone else's personal life. However, given that Weis has thrown this out there now, it is news. If this doesn't turn out to be true, then Weis will look really pathetic. However, if there is truth to this, then it is newsworthy given the recent events in sports world. GO BRUINS.

UPDATE II (N): Cheatey has responded with this in the Trojan Times:

Carroll said in a telephone interview that he was apprised of the report by Tim Tessalone, USC’s sports information director.


“It’s untrue, it’s irresponsible, and it’s incredible he’d be talking about me like that,” Carroll said of Weis.

Keep in mind that was posted in the Trojan Times (which exactly doesn't have a stellar record when it comes to thorough reporting on (alleged) transgressions (Tiger's favorite word) by Pom Pom's program). Anyway, that's the latest on it. It's Weiss v. Petey. Who should we trust? GO BRUINS.

UPDATE III (N): Now Weis has apologized for his comments stating his words were taken "totally out of context":

Former Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis has apologized and insists that heated comments he made about USC coach Pete Carroll were taken "totally out of context" and he meant no offense.

Weis, speaking to the Los Angeles Times on Sunday, said he was speaking to several reporters on a "totally subjective" basis as an aside to a formal interview and that the comments were meant to reference Internet rumors in general and how they impact coaches' lives and their families.

"In no way was I trying to take a shot at Pete," Weis said in a phone message to the Los Angeles Times. "What we were talking about was how the rumor mill can affect people's lives.

"When I was asked a specific question like that, I responded like, 'This is the same crap that I'm talking about.' You start saying things like this and one thing, this guy does this and I do that, and all of a sudden the Internet takes it all over the place.

"So, in no way was I trying to take a shot at Pete. I feel if I offended Pete, I will run Pete down and apologize. In no way do I have any idea what's going on in anyone's life other than the fact that rumors on the Internet can affect coaches' lives in a very, very negative fashion." senior editor Tim Prister, who posted the transcript of the Weis interview igniting this story didn't offer any comment. GO BRUINS.
