The NCAA was unable to come to an agreement with Oregon on sanctions over recruiting violations by the football program under former coach Chip Kelly, so the issue was sent to the organization’s infractions committee.

The committee’s penalties ended up falling mostly in line with what Oregon had proposed earlier.

Oregon will lose a scholarship in each season during a three-year probation period, but avoided a bowl ban and other major penalties under sanctions issued by the NCAA’s Division I Committee on Infractions on Wednesday.

The committee also placed an 18-month show-cause order on Kelly, a sanction that will likely have limited impact since he’s now coaching the Philadelphia Eagles.

For what was considered major recruiting violations, the outcome was about as good as Oregon could have expected.

KU coach reprimanded

Kansas basketball Bill Self was publicly reprimanded by the NCAA and fined an undisclosed amount after damaging the scorer’s table during an NCAA tournament game in Kansas City.

Self struck the table at the Sprint Center on March 24 during a third-round win over North Carolina.

Henderson reprimanded

Hurst L.D. Bell product Marshall Henderson received a public reprimand from the NCAA because of the guard’s actions following a third-round loss during the NCAA tournament in March.

The NCAA said Henderson made an “inappropriate gesture” toward the crowd after losing to LaSalle. Henderson, who averaged more than 20 points per game last season, was a lightning rod for criticism because of his boisterous on-court personality.

Briefly

• TCU equestrian: Haley Schoolfield has been named director of equestrian by director of intercollegiate athletics Chris Del Conte. Schoolfield, head equestrian coach at SMU the past four years, will oversee the Horned Frogs' Hunt Seat and Western disciplines. Schoolfield was an assistant coach for two years (2007-09) at TCU.

• Air Force basketball: Coach Dave Pilipovich has agreed to a five-year contract. Pilipovich, 49, took over the Falcons as interim coach in February 2012 when Jeff Reynolds was relieved of his duties and became the full head coach that March. He was 2-6 at the end of the 2011-12 season and directed the team to an 18-14 mark last season.
