Yahoo Sports is reporting that Oregon is likely headed toward a hearing with the NCAA committee on infractions after it could not resolve an investigation of the football coaching staff's use of a scouting service.
Yahoo cited two unidentified sources in a report Wednesday.
The NCAA investigated Oregon after questions arose over a 2010 payment of $25,000 to Willie Lyles and his Houston-based recruiting service. Lyles had a relationship with a player from Texas who committed to Oregon.
In July 2011, Lyles told Yahoo Sports the money was for influencing recruits to attend Oregon. 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.
