UO releases NCAA investigation documents

The University of Oregon released 246 pages of documents that disclose details on the 27-month investigation of the football program by the NCAA.

The NCAA’s findings were made public June 26 when Oregon suffered minor sanctions on recruiting and scholarship numbers for the next two seasons mainly due to the school’s relationship with Willie Lyles. Lyles, who was designated as a booster for the Ducks, stepped beyond the role of a typical scouting service operator, violating NCAA rules. One of the violations the NCAA discovered was the giving of gifts to players.

The documents Oregon released don’t shed any surprising news beyond what has already been made public, but they do include a redacted version of Oregon’s full response to the NCAA allegations. They also reveal why the NCAA’s Committee on Infractions rejected the school’s attempt at a “summary disposition” plea bargain in favor of a full hearing.
