Last week University of Oregon football players Garrett Embry and Jeremiah Masoli were accused of stealing thousands of dollars worth of stuff from a frat house on the University of Oregon campus. The theft allegedly took place on Jan 24.
(Theft suspect Embry was expendable for Oregon Coach Chip Kelly)
Yesterday Oregon football coach Chip Kelly announced that Embry was, “dismissed from the program on Jan. 8 for a violation of team rules.”
Ken Goe of the PORTLAND OREGONIAN correctly observes that after the Embry alleged theft on Jan. 24, “Oregon officials refused to confirm he had been dismissed (from the team).”
But if he was dismissed on Jan. 8, why did Kelly wait until yesterday to announce it?
