The Oregon football program has had its fair share of troubles in recent days.
After strength and conditioning coach Irele Oderinde was suspended without pay for workouts that led to the hospitalization of three players, new Ducks co-offensive coordinator David Reaves is set to be fired.
Reaves was arrested on a DUI charge earlier this morning.
As a result, he has been placed on administrative leave with the intention of firing him.
“University of Oregon assistant football coach David Reaves was arrested last night and charged with Driving Under the Influence by members of the Eugene Police Department, a statement read.
“Reaves has been placed on administrative leave and the process to terminate his employment with cause has commenced. The University has high standards for the conduct of employees and is addressing this matter with the utmost of seriousness.”
This is just the latest misstep by Willie Taggart’s new staff.
Oregon fans can only hope that things change for the better as the offseason continues.
