Bush's Heisman Trophy Will Be Sent Back By USC

Newly elected USC president Max Nikias was not done cleaning house today as he is also removing the Heisman trophy that was rewarded to Bush in 2004 from Heritage Hall. The memo also reads that the trophy and other valuables from Bush and OJ Mayo would be removed from the University:

The Trojan family honors and respects the USC sporting careers of those persons whose actions did not compromise their athletic program or the opportunities of future USC student-athletes. Accordingly, I have instructed the senior vice president for administration to remove athletic jerseys and murals displayed in recognition of O.J. Mayo and Reggie Bush by mid-August — before the incoming class of students moves on campus — from Heritage Hall, the Galen Center and the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The university also will return Mr. Bush’s 2005 Heisman Trophy to the Heisman Trophy Trust in August.
