*The president of the Heisman Trophy Trust says it has not decided yet whether to strip former USC running back Reggie Bush of the award he won in 2005 honoring college football’s top player.
The Trust said in a statement Wednesday that it is “considering the issues raised in the USC/Reggie Bush matter” and will eventually publish its decision.
The statement came a day after USC said it is returning its copy of Bush’s trophy, among several measures the school is taking to distance itself from Bush in the wake of severe NCAA sanctions.
As previously reported, the school hired Pat Haden to take over for Mike Garrett as athletic director.
Bush was part of the focus of an NCAA investigation that involved improper benefits.
