LANGSTON, Okla. (AP) — Former Southern California athletic director Mike Garrett has been hired to fill the same position at Langston University, a historically black college in central Oklahoma.

Langston president Kent Smith Jr. announced Tuesday that Garrett will fill the position left vacant when Patric Simon became the AD at Alcorn State.

Garrett was fired in July 2010 after being in charge during major violations by the football and men’s basketball programs at USC involving Reggie Bush and O.J. Mayo. The 1965 Heisman Trophy winner will be introduced at a news conference Thursday.

Garrett had been in charge of the Southern Cal athletic department for 17 years.

Langston’s teams compete in the NAIA.
