The NCAA’s ongoing investigation into the Oregon football program appears to be crawling toward conclusion.
It may still be months before a final verdict is rendered, but documents released Monday reveal the NCAA and the school concluded “major” violations were committed.
The parties do not agree on the severity of the violations, which will necessitate Oregon appearing before the Committee on Infractions sometime this spring or summer.
Oregon has proposed two years probation with a reduction of one scholarship each of the next three seasons.
The case centers on Oregon’s alleged improper alliance with a scouting service operated by Texas-based Willie Lyles. The school paid Lyles $25,000 for recruiting services, from 2008 to 2011.
