Oregon gives quarterback Jeremiah Masoli the boot | College football

The university said Masoli was dropped because he did not "adhere to obligations" outlined by coach Chip Kelly.

EUGENE, Ore. — Suspended Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli was kicked off the team Wednesday, two days after a police officer cited him for marijuana possession and driving infractions.

The university said Masoli was dropped because he did not "adhere to obligations" outlined by coach Chip Kelly.

A Springfield police officer cited Masoli late Monday on charges of possessing less than one ounce of marijuana, driving with a suspended license and failure to stop when entering a roadway, said Sgt. Tom Borchers of the Springfield Police Department.

Masoli can either pay a fine or contest the accusations at a June 24 court appearance, Borchers said.

Kelly suspended Masoli in March for the entire 2010 season after the QB pleaded guilty to burglary for his role in the theft of laptops and a guitar from a fraternity.

Masoli threw for 2,147 yards and 15 touchdowns last season. He also rushed for 668 yards and 13 touchdowns in a season that ended with a Rose Bowl loss to Ohio State.


• Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon said Florida prep football star Demar Dorsey has been informed he will not be admitted to the school.

• Eastern Washington will begin digging up its grass field Saturday as it prepares to lay distinctive red artificial turf for the upcoming season.
