OJ Simpson not allowed at USC practices and games, Clay Helton says

Share

With the ex-Trojans running back expected to be released from prison in October, USC football coach Clay Helton was asked Thursday if the Heisman Trophy victor would be welcomed back to campus.

USC football coach Clay Helton said Simpson, who was granted parole last week in Nevada after serving almost nine years in a Nevada prison for a botched robbery attempt, would not be permitted to attend a Trojans practice.

Helton said he would be "cordial" if he met Simpson. TMZ noted that Helton was asked during PAC-12 media day Thursday whether Simpson would be invited to watch practices or attend any other events at the university. When that happens, the 1968 Heisman Trophy victor will not be welcome on USC's campus.

Simpson was a guest at a USC practice in Florida before the 2003 Orange Bowl.

Simpson was granted parole earlier in July after spending more than eight years in prison for a 2008 armed robbery.

Simpson's No. 32 college jersey remains retired and is on display at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum where the team plays its home games. Simpson may be free and he may have been acquitted of double murder in 1995, but he isn't the kind of person the university should be embracing.
