Oregon CB Troy Hill suspended indefinitely
Oregon junior cornerback Troy Hill has been suspended indefinitely following misdemeanor charges of menacing and criminal mischief.
According to the Associated Press, Hill entered a not guilty plea to the charges stemming from an arrest on Friday. Ducks coach Mark Helfrich issued a statement regarding Hill's status on Monday.
"We expect every member of our program to hold themselves to a high standard of conduct and to represent this University with class, pride and integrity," Helfrich said in a prepared statement. "We will wait until the legal process has concluded before making any final determination of Troy Hill's status."
Hill missed the Ducks' regular season finale against Oregon State due to an unspecified violation of team rules. If he misses the bowl game, he will join sophomore tight end Pharaoh Brown ; who was suspended for the Alamo Bowl because of his role in an on-campus snowball fight.
Hill recorded an appearance in 11 games for the Ducks this season, recording 29 tackles, four pass breakups and a forced fumble.
Oregon's appearance in the Alamo Bowl will be the first non-BCS postseason game for the program since Mike Bellotti led the Ducks to the 2008 Holiday Bowl. It will also be the final game for Texas coach Mack Brown. Brown announced his resignation on Saturday night and will officially step down after the game.
