@GeorgeSchroeder: NCAA announces it will release Oregon findings on Wednesday.
The Oregon Ducks, a pre-season national title contender, did not get hit with any bowl ban as part of the sanctions from the NCAA's Committee on Infractions, a source told CBSSports.com Wednesday.
The NCAA will hold a teleconference later this morning to explain its' report from an investigation into the school's use of football recruiting services under former coach Chip Kelly, who left UO in January to become the Philadelphia Eagles head coach. As part of the sanctions, Kelly has been hit with an 18-month show-cause penalty.
The Ducks will also have some scholarship reductions over each of the next two seasons.
In Kelly's four seasons as the Ducks head coach, Oregon went 46-7 and went to BCS bowls every years. Under Kelly, Oregon finished the past three seasons in the top four.

2. Three years of probation from June 26, 2013, through June 25, 2016.
3. The number of initial athletically related financial aid awards in football that are countable under Bylaw 15.02.3 shall be reduced by one from the maximum allowed (25) during both the 2012-13 and 2013-14 academic years. This limits the institution to 24 initial grants those two years under current rules. (Institution imposed)
4. The number of total athletically related financial aid awards in football shall be reduced by one from the maximum allowed (85) during the 2012-13, 2013-14 and 2014-15 academic years. This limits the institution to 84 total scholarships those three years under current rules. (Institution imposed)
5. Official paid visits in the sport of football shall be limited to 37 for each of the 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-6 academic years. The institution will not be allowed to retain unused visits for the following year ...

7. A ban on the subscription to recruiting services during the period of probation.
8. The recruiting service provider will be disassociated by the institution's athletics program upon release of this report. (Institution imposed
9. The committee concluded that the former head coach failed in his duty to monitor his program as it related to the recruiting service provider's impermissible contact with prospective student-athletes, the football program's use of the recruiting service provider's business which did not comply with NCAA legislation, and the impermissible telephone calls placed by the former assistant director of operations. The former head coach agreed with these determinations. Therefore, pursuant to NCAA Bylaw 19.5, the committee imposes an 18-month show-cause order upon the former head coach. During this period, which begins on June 26, 2013, and runs through December 25, 2014, if any member institution seeks to hire the former head coach in an athletically related capacity, it and the former head coach shall appear before the Committee on Infractions to consider which, if any, of the show-cause procedures of Bylaw 220.127.116.11 (l) should be imposed upon him.
10. The committee concluded that the former assistant director of operations violated NCAA recruiting legislation.
