Former USC assistant Todd McNair reaches settlement with NCAA to end defamation suit

More than a decade after he sued for defamation, former USC football assistant coach Todd McNair has reached a settlement agreement with the NCAA, closing the book on a long-running legal saga that began in 2010, when the organization first accused him of unethical conduct during its investigation into improper benefits received by former Trojans star Reggie Bush.

While the NCAA’s sanctions against USC had long expired and Bush was welcomed back to campus last summer following a 10-year ban, McNair’s legal battle remained the last vestige of the landmark infractions case.
