Kelly says Ducks 'cooperated fully' with NCAA probe

EUGENE, Ore. >> Oregon football coach Chip Kelly said the Ducks have cooperated with the NCAA investigation into the school's use of recruiting services, and he isn't particularly surprised that the process has taken so long.

"They (the NCAA) have a process and a review that they go through and until they make their findings public, we can't really comment on it. But we've cooperated fully," he said.

He also said no potential recruits have mentioned the probe.

Kelly spoke after practice Thursday, addressing an Yahoo Sports report the day before that Oregon is likely headed toward a hearing with the NCAA committee on possible infractions because the two sides couldn't come to an agreement on appropriate sanctions. Yahoo cited two unidentified sources.

The inquiry is the result of reports that surfaced last year concerning 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 relationship with a player who committed to Oregon.

"I haven't spoken with them in over a year now. All these processes seem like they take a long time, but I'm not surprised by any stretch of the imagination," Kelly said.

Earlier this year, Oregon requested a summary disposition in the case. The school presented a report to the infractions committee outlining violations the school believed occurred and appropriate sanctions. But that request was apparently turned down.

"The integrity of the process and our continued full cooperation with the NCAA prohibits us from publicly discussing the specifics of this matter," Oregon said in a statement Wednesday night.

The NCAA doesn't comment on investigations.

The Ducks are preparing to play Kansas State in the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 3 in Glendale, Ariz.
