NCAA puts OR on two years' probation

Oregon athletic department put on probation

Head coach Kelly Graves of the Oregon Ducks in action during the UConn Huskies Vs Oregon Ducks, NCAA Women's Division 1 Basketball Championship game on March 27th, 2017 at the Webster Bank Arena, Bridgeport, Connecticut.

"Although occurring in different contexts, the men's and women's basketball violations share a common thread: impermissible staff participation in coaching activities that gave their programs the advantage of an extra coach", the committee said in its ruling. The team is 7-0 and now ranked No. 3.

The football violation stems from an incident in 2016 when the program used its new electronic reader board to display information about prospects when they were on campus.

The release said NCAA and OR officials disagreed about whether the instructor's actions violated NCAA rules, but NCAA rules interpretation staff and membership committees ultimately determined that it did. The team immediately stopped after being told it may be out of compliance. The NCAA has treated them appropriately I believe. As we noted several months ago, we have addressed the matters with the responsible employees and enhanced compliance training within the department.

Oregon Basketball Hit With Two-Year Probation After NCAA Investigation

Last year, OR received an NCAA notice of allegations, which alleged that its football, men's and women's basketball and women's track and field programs had committed several Level II rules violations. "I am steadfastly committed to building a winning program at the UO that operates in full compliance with NCAA bylaws and is committed to the highest levels of integrity". The men's program also allowed the director of basketball operations to impermissibly participate in and observe workouts. He must also attend NCAA rules seminars for the next two years. So the instructor changed the grade to a B-minus, based on the work the athlete had completed to date, much of which was completed after the course was over.

The student-athlete in question has been forced to vacate records accrued while ineligibly participating. Both programs failed to monitor the activities of their president of basketball operations, which included participating in team workouts. The university removed the athlete from competition and reported the violation to the NCAA, which determined it was an impermissible academic benefit. The school has 15 days to appeal.

OR self-reported many of these rule violations previously, while the football program violation dated back to the Mark Helfrich era. OR also self-imposed a penalty of one less coach at regular practice for ten hours.

There is also a $5000 fine imposed along with one percent of each of the Men's and Women's Basketball budgets.
