Both Oregon men’s basketball coach Dana Altman and women’s basketball coach Kelly Graves “failed to monitor” their respective programs, according to a report from a Division I Committee on Infractions panel released Wednesday.

The news is not related to the FBI investigation into men’s college basketball that has involved the Oregon Ducks.


Altman was found to have failed to monitor his director of basketball operations, according to the report.  Graves was found to have failed to monitor and promote an atmosphere of compliance in his program.

Graves must serve a two-game suspension this season.  The women’s basketball program must also reduce it’s number of countable coaches by one for 10 hours this season.

The men’s basketball program must reduce it’s number of countable coaches by one for 5 hours this season.  And director of basketball operations Josh Jameison, who impermissibly participated in and observed voluntary workouts, has been given a two-year show-cause from the NCAA that requires him to attend the 2019 and 2020 NCAA rules seminars.

These Level Two violations also involved the men’s and women’s track and field programs, as an adjunct professor changed the grade of a women’s track and field athlete to allow her to be eligible to compete.  The program must vacate any track and field records during the time that athlete participated in events.

The football program was also referenced in the report, though to a minor degree.

The decision on these infractions is considered light.

More as it develops.
