Oregon put on probation, loses scholarship
AP College Football Writer
The NCAA has taken away a scholarship and placed Oregon’s football program on probation for three years for recruiting violations under previous coach Chip Kelly.
The NCAA’s Division I Infractions Committee released a report on Wednesday that found Kelly and the university failed to monitor the program.
Oregon came under NCAA scrutiny after self-reporting violations stemming from payments made to recruiting services, including $25,000 to Willie Lyles and Houston-based Complete Scouting Services in 2011. Lyles had a connection with an Oregon recruit.
