  2. Ex-USF coach Willie Taggart defends workouts at Oregon

    College

    Oregon football coach Willie Taggart on Friday defended the Jan. 13 workouts that led to three players being hospitalized, calling them "warmups" and not "military-style" drills as they've been characterized.

    FILE - In this Dec. 8, 2016, file photo, new University of Oregon NCAA college football coach Willie Taggart takes questions during an introductory press conference in Eugene, Ore. The University of Oregon suspended football strength and conditioning coach Irele Oderinde one month without pay after three players were hospitalized following a series of intense workouts last week. The school announced the decision in a statement Tuesday evening, Jan. 17, 2017,  and detailed a review of the incident. It added that all future workouts have been modified and the strength and conditioning coach will now report to director of performance and sports science Andrew Murray instead of coach Willie Taggart, who apologized in the statement.
