Reggie Bush's former coach and former assistant coach at USC Todd McNair has filed suit against the NCAA for libel, slander and misconduct of an investigation related to the Reggie Bush NCAA probe.
McNair was punished for what the NCAA claimed was his role in the scandal surrounding the Heisman Trophy-winning tailback. The NCAA claimed he knew about some of the gifts lavished on Bush's family by two aspiring sports marketers hoping to land Bush as a client.
The NCAA imposed a two-year bowl ban and scholarship restrictions on USC. McNair was prohibited from contacting recruits and his USC contract was not renewed.
McNair's lawsuit claims the NCAA's investigation was one-sided and that McNair wasn't allowed to cross-examine witnesses.
