RENTON, Wash. - Pete Carroll says he's "absolutely shocked and disappointed" by the NCAA sanctions imposed on his former Southern California Trojans for improprieties surrounding running back Reggie Bush.

The new coach of the Seattle Seahawks said in a video produced Thursday at team headquarters that "the agenda of the NCAA's infractions committee took them beyond the facts."

Carroll, USC's coach until last January, says he will do everything he can to contribute to the school's appeal.

The NCAA banned USC from bowl games for two years, gave it four years' probation, took away scholarships and forced it to forfeit an entire year's games. Carroll said when he took the Seattle job that he was not escaping NCAA penalties at USC, and that he was comfortable there wouldn't be major ones.
