Quarterback Jeremiah Masoli, the would-be Hesiman Trophy candidate who led the Oregon Ducks to a Rose Bowl, has been kicked off the team today after derailing his college career with a second legal incident in six months.

According to Springfield Police Sgt. Tom Borchers, Masoli was stopped by Springfield police at 9:17 p.m. Monday at the intersection of Kruse Way and Hutton Street after exiting a driveway without stopping. The officer cited Masoli for driving with a suspended license, failing to stop while exiting a driveway and possession of one ounce or less of marijuana.

Others in the car were not cited, and Borchers did not name them. Reports indicate that Darron Thomas, one of the quarterbacks competing to succeed Masoli as the starter, was also in the car.

Masoli will be arraigned in Springfield municipal court at 8 a.m. June 24. None of the charges against Masoli carry a jail sentence, Borchers said. It is not immediately clear, however, how the new case could affect the year-long probation Masoli is currently serving after pleading guilty in March to a second-degree burglary charge. That case, in which a felony was bargained down to a misdemeanor, stemmed from a theft from the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity house in Eugene in January. Hours after Masoli admitted his guilt in that case, head coach Chip Kelly suspended his star quarterback for the entire 2010 season.

Today, after news of the marijuana arrest, the Ducks announced Masoli had been dismissed from the team for "failure to adhere to obligations previously outlined" by Kelly.

LaGarrette Blount was also kicked off the team, but it turned out not to be permanent. I don't believe Masoli is gone untill he never suits up again.
