Oregon athletic director Mike Bellotti talks about accepting a new position as a college football analyst for ESPN, during a news conference in Eugene, Ore. Oregon Attorney General John Kroger on Thursday, April 29, offered the following advice to the Ducks: put it in writing next time you hire an athletic director, especially if you’re going to pay him $2.3 million before he leaves for ESPN. The state Department of Justice found no criminal wrongdoing but it faulted university lawyers for failing to provide Bellotti with a written contract when he took over the AD’s job after 14 seasons as football coach.
