Oregon admits to NCAA violations

PORTLAND, Ore. – The University of Oregon acknowledged major NCAA violations in connection with football recruiting and proposed a self-imposed two-year probation with the loss of one scholarship in each of the next three years, according to documents released by the school.

The revelations were made in a summary disposition report included in the documents released Monday night. The contents were first reported by KATU television in Portland.

Oregon and the NCAA have failed to come to an agreement on the matter and the case is expected to go before the infractions committee at some point this year.

The NCAA began looking into possible violations after reports about payments Oregon made to recruiting services, including a $25,000 payment to Willie Lyles and Houston-based Complete Scouting Services in 2010. Lyles had a connection with an Oregon recruit.

The school and NCAA will not comment on the ongoing investigations.

The university released 515 pages of documents in response to public records requests. The documents were heavily redacted and included several drafts of the summary disposition report.

The report included details of Oregon’s relationship with Lyles.

The summary disposition noted no “lack of institutional control,” typically one of the most severe charges the NCAA can bring after an investigation of rules violations.
