NCAA Places Chadron State On Probation, 2011-12 Games Wiped Out

The NCAA has placed Chadron State on three years of probation and ordered the Division II school to vacate the results of all games in the 2011 and 2012 football seasons.

Those are among the sanctions announced Wednesday against the school in western Nebraska. Chadron State was found to have not exercised control over its athletic program when coach Bill O'Boyle held three private bank accounts for the football program, provided extra benefits to athletes and provided false or misleading information to the school. A football player also competed while ineligible.

The NCAA also issued a show-cause order for retired athletic director Brad Smith and O'Boyle. That means an NCAA school that wants to hire either man for an athletics-related job would have to get approval from the NCAA.

“We’re pleased to have a decision from the NCAA and now we can continue to ensure Eagle athletics remains the strong program it already is,” said CSC president Dr. Randy Rhine. “I have confidence in our coaching staff and athletic administration to lead us forward.”
