Ex-Oregon QB Jeremiah Masoli's new home: Ole Miss

August 02, 2010

Kicked off the team at Oregon, Jeremiah Masoli has found a new football home at Mississippi.

The former Ducks quarterback, dismissed from the team after two run-ins with the law, visited the Ole Miss campus in Oxford this weekend and coach Houston Nutt offered him a place on the team as a walk-on.

Masoli, a California native, posted on his Web site Sunday that he intends to take up the offer.

He can play immediately under NCAA rules because he has earned his undergraduate degree and is enrolling in graduate school.

Masoli was charged for his role in stealing a pair of laptop computers and a guitar from a fraternity house after the 2009 season. He pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of misdemeanor second-degree burglary and Oregon coach Chip Kelly suspended him for the 2010 season. He practiced with the team during spring drills and was expected to redshirt.

Kelly dismissed him in June, though, after he was cited for possession of less than an ounce of marijuana following a traffic stop.
