RENTON, Wash. (AP) - When Reggie Bush got his chance to face Pete Carroll in the NFC playoffs two seasons ago, he couldn't wait. Here was the opportunity to show off before his former college coach when injuries in the New Orleans backfield left Bush as the featured back.
Then Bush carried the ball just five times and Carroll had the far better day, celebrating the Seahawks' upset victory of the then-defending Super Bowl champs.
Bush gets another chance against Carroll on Sunday when Miami plays Seattle. The two will always be linked for their time together at USC, the NCAA probe that followed and Bush's eventual decision to give back his 2005 Heisman Trophy.
Carroll says it's still special to face one of his former players and knows it won't be easy to contain Bush.
