Reggie Bush’s Heisman Trophy is gone. Well, the trophy that the University of Southern California had has been relinquished. Bush still has his Heisman Trophy.
In announcing the hiring of Pat Haden as athletics director, the school also said it will return its copy of Bush’s trophy. The Heisman Trophy Trust has not asked Bush to return his trophy.
The NCAA found that USC broke multiple rules involving Bush and former basketball player O.J. Mayo, and the school has been punished. Now with the New Orleans Saints, this whole episode hasn’t had any tangible impact on Bush. But the running back has said he’s disappointed by what’s happened and still has strong feelings for USC.
