Oregon and former coach Chip Kelly appeared before the NCAA‘s committee on infractions last Friday, according to an SI.com report.
SI.com, citing a source, reports that Kelly said Oregon used Willie Lyles and Houston-based Complete Scouting Services “the same way other schools do.” According to the report, the committee is expected to make a decision on sanctions within 60-90 days.
Last week, Oregon acknowledged major NCAA violations in connection with 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 last Monday. 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 $25,000 to Lyles and Complete Scouting Services in 2010. Lyles had a connection with an Oregon recruit.
The NCAA will not comment on the ongoing investigations.
