USC interim athletic director Dave Roberts, who is also an insider with the NCAA, said Reggie Bush’s ban from the university will end in June, 2020.
Roberts said it would then be up to USC to decide if Bush is allowed back on campus in an interview with TrojanSports.com.
“The COI, which I sit on — Committee on Infractions — had recently put through a rule change. It’s called an IOP — internal operating procedure — which basically reduced any disassociation to a 10-year disassociation, much like what was given to [former Michigan basketball star] Chris Webber,” Roberts told the website. “So in June of 2020, the disassociation for Bush will expire and it’s going to be up to the university what the university wants to do.”
If I was USC, I would allow Bush to return on one condition: He apologizes for his actions, lack of contrition and the way his refusal to cooperate with the NCAA affected future Trojan players who were forced to deal with probation.
I’m guessing if that was the condition, Bush’s USC-ban would last even longer because I doubt he would apologize, unless he thought it would be good for his Fox Sports career.
