NCAA Lists Possible UO Violations


Byline: Rob Moseley The Register-Guard

Improper relationships with scouting services, too many coaches involved in recruiting and a failure by the University of Oregon athletic department to monitor the recruiting practices of the football program are among the potential rules violations included in ongoing discussions between the school and the NCAA, according to documents released Friday.

Since September, the NCAA formally has been investigating the Ducks and their use of scouting services to identify prospective recruits. One scouting service operator, Will Lyles, has said he believed the Ducks paid him for "access and influence" with players rather than for scouting information about them, which would violate NCAA guidelines.

On Friday, Oregon released two draft versions of the same four-page document titled Proposed Findings of Violations, which was submitted by the NCAA to Oregon and released in heavily redacted form. The first draft was dated Dec. 16, 2011, and a second version, labeled Revised Draft for Discussion Purposes, was undated.

Both versions indicated that the two parties would agree that the football team's relationships with three scouting services - including two that employed Lyles - from 2008 to 2011 were improper. However, the proposed agreement between the two bodies is only a point of discussion and not yet finalized.

Further, the draft document suggests that the NCAA and Oregon eventually could agree that the Ducks violated a rule that limits the number of coaches that can be involved in recruiting.

Perhaps most significantly - if the proposals were finalized - the Ducks and the NCAA would agree that, due to the "scope and nature" of the violations, "The athletics department failed to adequately monitor the football program's use of recruiting or scouting services."

Of the seven proposed violations listed in the draft document, four are completely redacted, including two of the three supporting the "failure to adequately monitor" allegation. Portions of the others also are redacted, making it impossible to draw conclusions about the ultimate severity of the charges, and punishments, Oregon might face.

However, a "failure to monitor" charge is among the most serious the NCAA can level.

In September, Oregon received a Notice of Inquiry from the NCAA regarding its use of scouting services. The draft document released Friday is not a formal Notice of Allegations, which would be the next step for the NCAA in a formal investigation of the Ducks.

A school spokesman said that, as of Friday, the Ducks had not received a Notice of Allegations. …
