Football: Ducks admit NCAA violations

Oregon has acknowledged in documents that it violated NCAA rules related to recruiting and the use of recruiting services.

The Register-Guard of Eugene wrote that Ducks used three scouting services in ways that did not conform with NCAA rules, and exceeded the permissible number of coaches involved in recruiting at any one time.

Here’s the potentially most serious stuff: The NCAA and Oregon “agreed that from 2008 through 2011, the scope and nature of the violations … demonstrate that the athletics department failed to adequately monitor the football program’s use of recruiting or scouting services.”
