Reggie Bush, Pete Carroll trying to move on from USC controversy
Reggie Bush and Pete Carroll might forever be joined at the hip -- an All-American running back whose college career was tarnished by controversy, and the big-time coach who somehow failed to keep his players on the straight and narrow.
At least that's the perception of many who witnessed the saga of the former Southern California star athlete and his coach.
The two will have a reunion of sorts at the Superdome on Sunday when Bush and the New Orleans Saints host the Carroll-coached Seattle Seahawks.
Bush knows questions about his past at USC will follow for some time, but he said he and Carroll are focusing on Sunday's game, when Bush is expected to play for the first time since breaking his fibula at San Francisco on Sept. 20.
Whether the two will continue to be infamously linked as the pair who sent Southern Cal crumbling from the national college limelight into probation will ultimately be up to the fans, Bush said.
"I think it is for the fans to make their minds up about that," Bush said. "I know we both have done our best to move on and try to focus on the now, and that's kind of it.
"But as far as all the stuff that happened with that, it's unfortunate and something that obviously nobody wanted to happen. And it is unfortunate that it did happen. All we could do is kind of manage it when it did happen and try to learn from it."

Carroll is shady. He knew the deal the whole time and saw the storm coming so he bailed on USC and left them in a mess.
