Reggie Bush Surrenders His Heisman Trophy

Reggie Bush's comments about Chad Johnson weren't the only source of headlines he provided Wednesday. In an interview on Dan Patrick's national radio show, the Miami Dolphins running back and former USC star said he'd given his Heisman Trophy back to the Heisman Trust. Bush's Heisman was revoked after a 2010 NCAA investigation uncovered a lack of institutional control by the Trojans while Bush was in school. He is the first player ever to have his Heisman trophy revoked. USC received four years of probation, a two-year postseason ban, and a loss of 30 scholarships over three years as a result of the same investigation.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Patrick said he had spoken to the Heisman Trust people "a couple of weeks ago," and they claimed that Bush still had the trophy. He also noted that USC athletic director Pat Haden said that Bush was not allowed around the USC program. Bush insisted that the trophy had been in possession of the Heisman Trust "for awhile now," and said he hasn't had any intention of going back to his alma mater.
