EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Oregon has agreed in documents that it violated NCAA regulations relating to recruiting and the use of recruiting services.
A statement of “proposed findings of violations” submitted by the NCAA to the Oregon athletic department was obtained Friday in a public records request by several media outlets.
The report concludes that Oregon didn’t adequately monitor its football program in relation to recruiting rules.
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. The information that Oregon said Lyles provided for the fee was largely outdated.
Oregon has not received a formal Notice of Allegations from the NCAA. The heavily redacted documents released Friday do not include any possible penalties.
