EUGENE, Ore. (AP) Oregon and defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt have mutually parted ways.
The two sides reached a financial settlement that will pay Leavitt $2.5 million, funded by private sources over multiple years, Oregon announced Thursday. The settlement would be less if he gets a new job.
Leavitt was under contract until 2021. He spent two seasons in Eugene after he was hired by former Ducks coach Willie Taggart
