Former South Carolina staff member David Reaves just started his new job at Oregon, but it appears to be coming to a quick end.
Reaves, recently hired to be part of Willie Taggart’s staff at Oregon, is in the process of being fired after he was arrested early Sunday on charges of a DUI, reckless driving and reckless endangerment, according to OregonLive.
“Reaves has been placed on administrative leave and the process to terminate his employment with cause has commenced,” Oregon athletic director Rob Mullens said in a statement. “The University has high standards for the conduct of employees and is addressing this matter with the utmost of seriousness.”
Reaves was officially hired at Oregon this week as a co-offensive coordinator. He previously worked at South Florida under Taggart, who was hired away prior to facing South Carolina in the Birmingham Bowl to be the next coach at Oregon.
Reaves, 38, worked as South Carolina for seven years. He started as a graduate assistant for two years in 2002-03. He worked with defensive backs in 2004 before he took on a role as assistant quarterbacks coach for two seasons. He helped the role of recruiting coordinator from 2006-08, while also being the quarterbacks coach from 2007-08.
He reportedly was set to coach tight ends at Oregon in addition to his role as co-offensive coordinator.
