Doug Brenner, Sam McCormick and Sam Poutasi were hospitalized with rhabdomyolysis after going through military-style workouts. Oderinde, who was hired less than a week ago, followed new Oregon coach Willie Taggart from South Florida. Long-time Oregon assistant Jim Radcliffe will assume Oderinde’s duties for the next month.

The school issued a statement on the players and Oderinde:

It will be intriguing to see if this negatively affects Taggart’s first recruiting class at Oregon.
