Texas coach Mack Brown: Vince Young deserves Reggie Bush’s 2005 Heisman Trophy


Chuck Carlton – The Dallas Morning News


Texas coach Mack Brown told The Dan Patrick Show that he believes Vince Young deserves the 2005 Heisman Trophy won by Reggie Bush.


“I think you have to go back and really give that choice to the Heisman Trust. If they take it away, I think Vince should be awarded the trophy . . . Vince was second in the voting, so even if they re-voted I would like to see Vince get it,” the Longhorns football coach told Dan Patrick.


“At this point it’s irrelevant because the Heisman Trust has not decided to take it away,” he added.


The NCAA determined that Bush received illegal benefits during his time at USC. Southern California has returned its copy of Bush’s Heisman Trophy in its ongoing effort to repair its reputation after last month’s severe NCAA sanctions that involved a bowl ban.


The Heisman Trust has not asked for Bush to return his copy of the trophy … yet.
