Oregon State police cited Oregon cornerback Cliff Harris driving 118 mph on Interstate 5. The fine for driving over 100mph is $1,148. Harris was also cited for driving with a suspended license.
Oregon Coach Chip Kelly was disappointed by Harris’ actions. In a statement, Kelly said, “I’ve said from the beginning that it should be a privilege to play football at the University of Oregon.” He further stated, “once we have finished collecting all the information in this situation, we will determine the appropriate action.”
Kelly has a history of upholding the character and integrity of the Oregon football program. Just last month, linebacker Kiko Alonso pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges of trespassing and criminal mischief. Kelly ultimately dismissed Alonso indefinitely from the team.
