Oregon suspends Conditioning coach

Oregon has suspended new strength and conditioning coach Irele Oderinde without pay for a month, the result of incidents over the last week that left three Ducks football players hospitalized after offseason conditioning workouts.

As of Tuesday evening, Ducks tight end Cam McCormick, a Summit graduate, and offensive lineman Sam Poutasi were still patients at Peace Health Sacred Heart Medical Center in Springfield.

Multiple sources described the workouts akin to military basic training, with one said to include up to an hour of continuous push-ups and up-downs. Former conditioning coach Jim Radcliffe, who had held the position before the hiring of new head Coach Willie Taggart will take over the offseason workouts for the next month.
