San Diego museum giving Bush his Heisman back

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Reggie Bush's copy of his 2005 Heisman Trophy currently is in the possession of a San Diego sports museum, but is not on display.

Angela LaChica, a vice president at the San Diego Hall of Champions, says the hall received the trophy from the family in March but never displayed it and now is in the process of getting it back in the hands of Bush's family.

The Heisman Trust no longer recognizes Bush as the winner of the award. Bush relinquished his title to it after an NCAA probe concluded that the former Southern California star and his family accepted improper benefits from would-be sports agents while Bush was still playing for USC.

The same probe also led the Bowl Championship Series to vacate USC's 2004 BCS national title.
