USC Trojans football coach Clay Helton made it clear that OJ Simpson will not be welcomed back to campus with open arms following his release from prison.

“Right now with USC, what the administration and the athletic department have said is, no, O.J. will not be a part of our functions. That’s been the statement,” Helton told the media Thursday during PAC-12 media days, according to ESPN.

Simpson, who also goes by the name “The Juice,” was recently granted parole after serving nine years for robbery and kidnapping charges in the state of Nevada.

The convicted-felon was a standout running back for the Trojans before going on and excelling in the NFL.

Of course, The Juice is most famous for not what he did on the field, but for being accused of brutally killing Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman in June 1994. He beat the double-murder charge at trial, but many people still suspect Simpson at the very least played some form of role in the butchering of two innocent people.
