Oregon strength and conditioning coach Irele Oderinde was suspended for one month without pay after three Oregon players were hospitalized following grueling workouts.
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.
