Disable USB Controller (Non-Bios)


I wonder if anyone know how to disable the USB controller through the Linux Command Line, not through the BIOS. I need to disable the USB controller because my PCI card is having a shared IRQ and the interupts alert are noisy and i also do not need the USB too.

I'm asking this because i have a remote centos machine which i can't touch the BIOS remotely.

I already googling it but can't find it.

Perhaps by unloading the kernel usb modules? Meaning with the command "lsmod | grep -i usb" you will get a list of usb modules and by issuing "modprobe -r <module_name>" you remove them?
