    His Controversy With Students Of LA Pierce College

    Around 2019, a controversy broke out between Carlos Woods and students of LA Pierce College. Apparently, despite his reputation as the head coach, he charged the students $400 for an uncomfortable stay in an off-campus residence.

    One of the victims of his scam, Jose Cardova, said,

    “He promised actual living space, but with how many people were living in that house, it ended up feeling like a camp/jail.”

    Additionally, the students were also evicted from there said residence because the landlord did not receive any rent. So, all the blame fell onto the head coach’s shoulders. Following the allegations, he was also suspended for some time for a thorough investigation. However, to this date, no one knows what the authorities concluded.
