Chip Kelly Is On His Way Out
Oregon might have dumbest coaching staff in America. How else can you explain how they shelled out $25,000 to Will Lyles’ Complete Scouting Services for the 2011 “National Package” without it containing information on any 2011 recruits. That’s right… in the documents released released it showed that they gave 25G’s for the “2010 National High School Evaluation Booklet” which highlighted 140 recruits, almost all of whom graduated in 2009.
Looks like it is true what everyone expects… Oregon’s coaching staff paid Lyles to help steer five-star Texas running back Lache Seastrunk and possibly LaMichael James, both of whom are close with Lyles.
So now that we know this… what happens now?
Well of course the NCAA will take its sweet time investigation, but once they finally get around to handing down a Notice of Allegations it’s hard to imagine that Oregon won’t face some kind of major punishment. I’m not talking USC or UNC bad, but it result in a vacating of wins if they do indeed rule James and Seastrunk ineligible.
But the big question is will head coach Chip Kelly be forced to resign for breaking the rules a la Jim Tressel? Only time will tell.
