Documents: Oregon Proposed 2-Year Probation

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- The University of Oregon proposed a self-imposed two-year probation and the loss of a scholarship for three years because of possible recruiting violations involving the Ducks' football program.

The university released documents late Monday that included a proposed summary disposition from September which discusses the violations and characterizes at least one as "major." The contents of the documents were first reported by KATU television in Portland.

The NCAA began looking into possible violations following reports about payments Oregon made to recruiting services, including a $25,000 payment to Willie Lyles and Houston-based Complete Scouting Services in 2010. Lyles had a connection with an Oregon recruit.

Oregon and the NCAA failed to come to an agreement on the matter and the case is expected to go before the infractions committee this year.
