We caught up with Head Coach Pete Carroll at today's morning practice for his comments. Carroll confirmed that the sophomore tailback from Texas has indeed left the program.
Carroll said, "It wasn't a snap decision at all. Yesterday afternoon we
visited about it. He's of the mind he needs to move on."
When questioned on the reason for Emmanuel Moody's departure Carroll explained,
"He's looking for an opportunity where he might be the only guy at a spot
and really be a featured guy."
Carroll made it clear that there was no animosity from either party.
"He didn't leave disgruntled….He said he had no regrets. We didn't
either. We loved him here and now it's time for him to move on."
Moody was listed fifth on USC's depth chart this summer.
As a freshman in 2006, Moody appeared in nine games and was the starting
tailback for the Trojans in four games. He rushed for 459 yards on 79 carries
with 2 touchdowns. Moody ran for a career-high 130 yards in the Trojans 20-3
victory over Arizona.
