Oregon linebacker Kiko Alonso, who was cited for DUI on Saturday morning, has been suspended for the season by Ducks Coach Chip Kelly. Oregon sent out this release today:
University of Oregon linebacker Kiko Alonso has been suspended for the entire 2010 football season, effectively immediately, according to head coach Chip Kelly Monday.
Kelly added that specific details regarding Alonso’s involvement within the program during the suspension are still being formulated, but that the suspension would definitely exclude the Los Gatos, Calif., redshirt freshman from playing in any games during the entire 2010 season.
I have a feeling this suspension will be a little stickier than LeGarrette Blount’s last season. Read more…
