Oregon Won’t Appeal NCAA Sanctions On Football Recruiting

A spokesman for the University of Oregon says the school will not appeal the penalties that the NCAA handed down last month for recruitment violations.

Oregon was given sanctions on recruiting and scholarship numbers for two seasons. The school is also prohibited from using scouting services and the football program will be subject to more oversight.

The Eugene Register-Guard reports that the deadline for challenging the ruling has  now expired.

The school has released some new documents related to the investigation, after a records request by the newspaper.

The new documents show why the NCAA required the school to submit to a full committee hearing instead of just entering a plea.  

It wanted more detail than had been provided about the school’s recruiting policies and relationships.

University officials have admitted to errors that led to the NCAA violations but say that Oregon coaches did nothing to intentionally gain an unfair advantage in recruiting.
