Oregon Put On Probation, Loses Scholarship

Oregon Spring Game

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.

The NCAA has been looking into Oregon’s recruiting practices since questions arose over a 2010 payment of $25,000 to Willie Lyles and his Houston-based recruiting service, Complete Scouting Services. Lyles had a connection with an Oregon recruit.

The NCAA also reduced Oregon’s official paid visits from 56 to 37 for the next three academic years, reduced its evaluation days for each of the next three seasons and banned the program from using recruiting services during the probation period.
