Oregon co-offensive coordinator and tight ends coach David Reaves was arrested Saturday night by the Eugene Police and charged with driving under the influence.

The process to terminate Reaves’ employment with cause has begun, according to the school.

“University of Oregon assistant football coach David Reaves was arrested last night and charged with Driving Under the Influence by members of the Eugene Police Department,” Oregon athletic director Rob Mullens said in a news release. “Reaves has been placed on administrative leave and the process to terminate his employment with cause has commenced. The University has high standards for the conduct of employees and is addressing this matter with the utmost of seriousness.”

Reaves was officially hired by Oregon on Tuesday.

Oregon coach Willie Taggart, who was hired in early December to replace Mark Helfrich, had brought Reaves along from USF, where he had coached four different positions in four seasons.

The news of Reaves’ DUI charge comes less than a week after the Oregon athletic department suspended strength and conditioning coach Irele Oderinde for a month without pay after three Oregon football players were hospitalized following offseason workouts.
