Former Oregon coach Chip Kelly took more of a hit than the Ducks he left behind when the NCAA handed down its long-awaited penalties to the Oregon football program Wednesday morning. Kelly (now the head coach of the Philadelphia Eagles)received an 18-month "show-cause" order should he decide to return the college level at some point.
Oregon will lose one scholarship per year for the next three years and be on probation for the next three years. The team did not receive a postseason bowl ban. The penalties are a results of the $25,000 the football program paid Willie Lyles as a recruiting scout. Lyles had close connections with several top national prospects, which raised questions about what exactly the Ducks were paying him to do. The program has cut off all relationships with recruiting services as part of its self-imposed penalties.

Here's the release from the NCAA
The University of Oregon used a recruiting service provider, who became a representative of the universitys athletics interests, to assist the school with the recruitment of multiple prospective student-athletes, according to findings by the Division I Committee on Infractions.
Other penalties that apply for the next three years include:
- Oregon gets only 37 official visits instead of the normal 56
- A reduction in the number of evaluation days Oregon coaches can spend on the road
- A one-year show-cause for the former assistant director of operations
Thanks for the info Dan. Has there been anything yet on the Miami sanctions?
slap on the wrist- want to get rid of violations (in theory) Two things-
Appoint a Commissioner like baseball a lifetime appointment so he/she is beholden to NO entity- never worried about his/her job- and make is a former prosecutor a tuff judge-
He is allowed to hire investigative body again appointments that are only hired and fired by the Commissh- not paid by NCAA- but some sort of independent body
Lastly something like Oregon they get hammered- the commish has the final say on penalties- Make examples of these programs HARD and see what happens
BTW real wonder why Chip bailed huh- yeah right
The NCAA held its hearings with Miami two weeks ago. No word yet on when the whole mess mess will shake out from what I've seen.
As some have pointed out elsewhere, the timing of this announcement could not have been better for the Ducks. Next week they'll have dozens of the country's top high school football players just down the road at Nike's "The Opening" and can now tell all of them that the violations other teams' coaches have been warning them about are not a big deal.
No down-vote please - thank you!

Run the ball.
Stop the run.
You win, or lose, up front.
Not even a slap on the wrist, rather a kiss on the cheek. Cash payments to players were part of findings as I heard from a report here. Pretty pathetic if you really (NCAA) want to stop that.
