NCAA alleges Oregon infractions in 4 programs

School plans to contest their severity

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - The NCAA alleges the University of Oregon committed infractions in four athletic programs, including the men's and women's basketball teams.
 
Men's Coach Dana Altman and women's Coach Kelly Graves are accused of exceeding the NCAA limit of four coaches by allowing other staff members to participate in team activities during practice.
 
Meanwhile, a professor allegedly changed a failing grade so a woman could stay on the track team.
 
The Register-Guard reports the NCAA has labeled the violations the second-highest of four levels.
 
The university acknowledged mistakes Thursday, but said it plans to contest the severity of the infractions.
 
Athletic Director Rob Mullens says Oregon self-reported the violations, and its coaches are committed to compliance with NCAA bylaws.
 
He says the school has addressed the matters with the responsible employees and increased training.
