And so it seems the Josh Shaw Saga at USC has reached its conclusion.

The school announced Wednesday evening that Shaw admitted to athletic department officials that he fabricated his story about hurting his ankles while saving his nephew in a pool and he's been suspended indefinitely.

"We are extremely disappointed in Josh," said Steve Sarkisian in a release. "He let us all down. As I have said, nothing in his background led us to doubt him when he told us of his injuries, nor did anything after our initial vetting of his story.

"I appreciate that Josh has now admitted that he lied and has apologized. Although this type of behavior is out of character for Josh, it is unacceptable. Honesty and integrity must be at the center of our program. I believe Josh will learn from this. I hope that he will not be defined by this incident, and that the Trojan Family will accept his apology and support him."
