NCAA penalizes OR for hoops, track and field violations | AP sports

A similar self-imposed penalty was placed on the women's program, who must reduce the number of countable coaches by one at regular practice for 10 hours from 2018-19.

University of OR women's basketball coach Kelly Graves will be suspended for two games as part of violations announced by the NCAA Committee on Infractions on Wednesday. The NCAA also ruled that men's basketball coach Dana Altman failed to monitor his director of operations, who was given a two-year show-cause order by the committee. For the Women's Basketball Program, Head Coach Kelly Graves failed to monitor and promote an atmosphere of compliance.

The same assistant strength coach also took place in voluntary student-athlete workouts, which the decision says Graves didn't know specifically about the workout participation but "kind of assumed" it was happening, which is part of why the Committee on Infractions concluded that Graves had "disregard for the rules about impermissible coaching activity".

The NCAA said the instructor initially offered to change the grade to incomplete until the athlete completed the course over the summer.

The football violation stems from an incident in 2016 when the program used its new electronic reader board to display information about prospects when they were on campus. The team immediately stopped after being told it may be out of compliance.

As of 3:15 p.m. ET, Oregon has not released a statement on the findings.

The NCAA committee did note that OR self-reported the violations, and the committee on infractions recognized Altman specifically for "promoting an atmosphere of compliance".

Let me start by saying that the violations were all self-reported previous year.

According to the NCAA, Jamieson described his involvement in the voluntary workouts as a "very poor lapse in judgment" and explained he wanted to help incoming freshmen transition to college and give them the workout time they wanted.

The director of basketball operations, Josh Jameison, was suspended by Altman for one month.

The school said the faculty member changed the grade of the track athlete from failing to passing contingent on the athlete completing the work. The university removed the athlete from competition and reported the violation to the NCAA, which determined it was an impermissible academic benefit. The compliance staff then directed the football program to end the practice and self-reported the violation. OR also self-imposed a penalty of one less coach at regular practice for ten hours.

The student-athlete in question has been forced to vacate records accrued while ineligibly participating. OR was fined one percent of the basketball budget.
