Pac-10 Approves Reinstatement of Oregon's LeGarrette Blount
Nov. 9, 2009
WALNUT CREEK, Calif.- Pacific-10 Conference Commissioner Larry Scott has approved a request from University of Oregon to reinstate suspended football player LeGarrette Blount. Blount was suspended for unsportsmanlike actions following Oregon's football game at Boise State in September.
'After a thorough review of the situation, I am convinced LeGarrette Blount paid a significant and appropriate price for the mistakes he made on the field and that he has learned important life-long lessons,' said Scott.
The reinstatement is effective immediately and Blount is eligible to play in Oregon's remaining football games.
