Oregon gets 3 years probation

EUGENE, Ore. — The NCAA stripped Oregon of a scholarship in each of the next three seasons and placed the program on probation for three years, opting against stiffer penalties like a bowl ban despite issuing a show-cause order against former coach Chip Kelly, who apologized to the school, its fans and it players.

The NCAA’s Division I Committee on Infractions released a report on Wednesday that said Kelly failed to monitor the program for its improper involvement with Willie Lyles and his Houston-based recruiting service.

Kelly was hit with an 18-month show-cause order, a sanction that likely will have limited impact now that he’s coaching the Philadelphia Eagles.

Lions sign ex-Bear Idonije

ALLEN PARK — The Detroit Lions say they’ve signed ex-Chicago Bears agent defensive end Israel Idonije to a 1-year contract and have released defensive end Freddie Bishop.

Idonije has spent nine seasons with the Bears. He started 11-of-16 games last season and finished second on the team in sacks (7.5) behind Julius Peppers (11.5).

Idonije made 48 tackles (29 solo), had 7.5 sacks (68 yards) and one forced fumble last season.
