O.J. Simpson recently received some good news while serving his prison sentence for kidnapping and armed robbery. Last week, the former NFL player was granted an early release by the Nevada parole board.
Just when it seemed like things have been going well for Simpson, he just received some unexpected news. Simpson will no longer be welcome at his Alma Mater USC. It is a move that surprised some people.
USC head coach Clay Helton says O.J. will not be welcome on campus to watch practice or take part in any official events. According to the Los Angeles Times, Helton said, "Currently, right now, what USC, the administration, and the athletic department have said is, 'No, O.J. will not be a part of functions or invited.' That's been the statement by the university."
Helton's statement comes after Simpson was granted parole after serving almost 9 years of his 33-year sentence. He could be released as early as October 1 and plans to move to Florida.
A copy of the Heisman Trophy Simpson won in 1968 while playing running back for the Trojans is still on campus. The football team also retired his jersey number 32. This was sure to be a devastating blow to Simpson's ego.
