NCAA announced sanctions for Oregon infractions

The violations from the men's and women's basketball are similar to one another.

Oregon's athletic department has been put on a two-year probation after a Division I NCAA Committee on Infractions panel ruled that the Ducks' women's basketball coach Kelly Graves failed to monitor and promote an atmosphere of compliance in his program while men's basketball coach Dana Altman failed to monitor his director of basketball operations, Josh Jamieson.

The two year probation runs from December 5, 2018 through December 4, 2020 and is accompanied by several other penalties including a two-game suspension for the head women's basketball coach during the 2018-19 season.

The basketball programs are under the most scrutiny in this report, as the men's and women's programs "failed to promote an atmosphere of compliance".

Also, the NCAA said an adjunct instructor changed a grade for a track and field athlete, allowing the competitor to remain eligible.

Oregon's assistant strength and conditioning coach participated in voluntary student workouts as well as in practices at Graves' request.

Last year, OR received an NCAA notice of allegations, which alleged that its football, men's and women's basketball and women's track and field programs had committed several Level II rules violations. The NCAA has treated them appropriately I believe. The team immediately stopped using the board after being told it could violate compliance.

The release said NCAA and OR officials disagreed about whether the instructor's actions violated NCAA rules, but NCAA rules interpretation staff and membership committees ultimately determined that it did. At that time, the university said it self-reported the infractions and acknowledged that they occurred, but disagreed with the level that the NCAA assigned to some of them, including the charges involving the head coaches.

The professor stated this was due to the system not allowing him to give the athlete an incomplete, with the grade coming following the submission of said coursework.

A women's track and field athlete will have her results vacated for the period of her ineligibility due to academic misconduct within the University.

The violations by the Basketball programs were minor, but for Oregon Track and Field, it was a different story.

In addition to the probation and Graves' suspension, the NCAA said the men's team must reduce the number of coaches at a regular practice by five hours this season, which the women's team much do the same for 10 hours this season.

The decision also announced that OR had violations in men's basketball, women's track and field and football.
