No bowl ban for Ducks; Kelly hit with show-cause penalty
The Oregon Ducks, a pre-season national title contender, did not get hit with any bowl ban as part of the sanctions from the NCAA's Committee on Infractions, but former head coach Chip Kelly got hit with a show-cause penalty, a source told CBS.
The Oregon Ducks, a pre-season national title contender, did not get hit with any bowl ban as part of the sanctions from the NCAA's Committee on Infractions, a source told CBSSports.com early Wednesday morning. In addition, former Ducks coach Chip Kelly, who left UO in January to become the Philadelphia Eagles head coach, has been hit with an 18-month show-cause penalty.
The NCAA later held a teleconference later Wednesday to explain its report from an investigation into the school's use of football recruiting services under Kelly.
The Ducks will also lose one scholarship over each of the next two seasons. Their roster scholarship limit will be at 84 (one under the 85 limit) for 2012-13, 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons. Oregon also will serve three years of probation from June 26, 2013 through June 25, 2016.
In Kelly's four seasons as the Ducks head coach, Oregon went 46-7 and went to BCS bowls every year. Under Kelly, Oregon finished the past three seasons in the top four.
