SAN DIEGO (AP) — Reggie Bush's family has taken back a copy of his 2005 Heisman Trophy from a San Diego sports museum.

The San Diego Hall of Champions said it returned the trophy to the family on Friday and declined further comment.

The museum received the trophy from the family in March but never displayed it.

The Heisman Trust stopped recognizing Bush as the winner after an NCAA probe concluded that Bush and his family accepted improper benefits from would-be sports agents while Bush was still playing for USC. Bush later relinquished his title to it.

The news was first reported Monday by the San Diego Union-Tribune. The newspaper said a call to the Bush family to see whether they plan to keep the trophy or return it to the trust wasn't returned.
