USC Delivers Uninvited Message to Former Heisman Winner O.J. Simpson

 OJ Simpson Not Welcomed at USC

There’s speculation as to whether or not  disgraced NFL star, O.J. Simpson,  plans to visit his alma mater USC, once he’s a free man.

However, he might not receive the warmest homecoming!

“O.J. Simpson, your not welcome!”  The ex-Trojans running back who was recently granted parole is expected to be released from prison in October.

According to TMZ.com,  USC football coach Clay Helton was asked Thursday if the Heisman Trophy winner would be welcomed back to campus.

His reply…”Currently, right now, what the USC administration and athletic department has said is, ‘No, O.J. will not be a part of our functions or invited,'” Helton told reporters at PAC-12 media day.

“That’s been the statement by the university.”

When asked what he would say to Simpson if the 70-year-old wanted to come to a practice, Helton said — “I’m cordial to every person that I’ve ever met.”

Simpson attended the University of Southern California (USC), where he played football for the USC Trojans and won the Heisman Trophy in 1968. He played professionally in the NFL as a running back for 11 seasons, primarily with the Buffalo Bills from 1969 to 1977. He also played for the San Francisco 49ers from 1978 to 1979. In 1973, he became the first NFL player to rush for more than 2,000 yards in a season. He holds the record for the single season yards-per-game average, which stands at 143.1. He is the only player to ever rush for over 2,000 yards in the 14-game regular season NFL format.

Simpson was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1983 and the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1985. After retiring from football, he began new careers in acting and football broadcasting.

In 1994, Simpson was arrested and charged with the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson, his former wife, and her friend Ron Goldman. He was acquitted after a lengthy and internationally publicized trial.

The families of the victims filed a civil suit against him, and in 1997 a civil court awarded a $33.5 million judgment against Simpson for the victims’ wrongful deaths.

In 2007, Simpson was arrested in Las Vegas, Nevada, and charged with the felonies of armed robbery and kidnapping. In 2008, he was convicted and sentenced to 33 years imprisonment, with a minimum of nine years without parole. He served his sentence at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Lovelock, Nevada. On July 20, 2017, Simpson was granted parole. He will be eligible for release from prison on October 1, 2017, but a precise date has not yet been set.
