EUGENE, Ore. -- The NCAA served sets of penalties to the University of Oregon football, men's basketball, women's basketball and track programs on Wednesday morning.

Oregon self-reported many of these rule violations previously, while the football program violation dated back to the Mark Helfrich era. The issues at hand dealt specifically with non-compliance with NCAA rules and academic misconduct pertaining to the track and field program.

Ducks women's hoops coach Kelly Graves received the stiffest penalty: a two game suspension for the 2018-2019 season. Eleanor Myers, Chief Hearing Officer for this particular case stated it was due to Graves direct non-compliance with the issue at hand.

Oregon's assistant strength and conditioning coach participated in voluntary student workouts as well as in practices at Graves' request. The NCAA also found that the head coach was candid and admitted to a lapse in judgment but still failed to promote an environment of compliance within the program. Oregon also self-imposed a penalty of one less coach at regular practice for ten hours.

The men's basketball program also agreed to a similar self-imposed penalty, but with one less coach at regular practice for five hours instead of ten.

The director of basketball operations, Josh Jamieson, was also given a two year show-cause order, meaning any employer that hires Jamieson must require him to attend NCAA regional rules seminars. Oregon also took in-house disciplinary measures stemming from Jamieson observing or directly taking part in voluntary workouts "at least 64 times," along with refereeing practices.

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. An adjunct professor changed the athlete's grade from an F to a B-minus after allowing her to submit coursework after the course had ended.

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.

Oregon's senior vice provost for academic affairs said the athlete did not violate the school's misconduct policy, and the professor said he would have made the same accommodation for any student regardless of athlete status.

Among the program-specific violations at hand, the athletic program was also put on two years probation from Dec. 5, 2018, to Dec. 4, 2020.
