Oregon Quarterback Jeremiah Masoli Dismissed From School Following Traffic Incident

Jeremiah Masoli has played his last game for Oregon. The star quarterback, who was suspended for the 2010 season following pleading to a misdemeanor theft charge, has been kicked off the team after a traffic incident Monday night, according to the team's official Twitter feed.

Per OregonLive.com, Masoli was pulled over Monday night after not stopping after exiting a driveway. Masoli was found to be driving with a suspended license, as well as having a small amount of marijuana in the car. His arraignment is scheduled for June 24th, though none of the charges against him carry any jail time.

Oregon promptly dismissed Masoli from the team after news of his latest legal woes surfaced, ending a tumultuous past six months for the troubled quarterback and university. Masoli, who led Oregon to the Rose Bowl in 2009, came under fire after being implicated in the theft of a computer from a campus fraternity this past January. Masoli eventually plead to a misdemeanor, and was suspended from the team for the 2010 season, though he planned to return in 2011 to use his last year of college eligibility. Masoli's legal issues, of course, came on the heels of running back LeGarrette Blount's infamous punch in the team's season-opening game against Boise State, casting an extremely negative light on the Oregon program, and creating little tolerance for any further legal problems.

Masoli finishes his Oregon career as the school's all-time leading rusher for a quarterback, after guiding the Ducks to consecutive 10-3 seasons.
