Oregon suspends LB Alonso for 2010 season

Oregon coach Chip Kelly has suspended linebacker Kiko Alonso for

the 2010 football season.

Alonso was arrested Saturday on suspicion of driving under

the influence of intoxicants — the fourth Ducks player to be

arrested in the past month.

Alonso played in 12 games as a redshirt freshman last season.

The school said Monday he will have two seasons of eligibility

remaining after the 2010 season.

Alonso’s arrest indirectly led to the dismissal of receiver

Jamere Holland. In a Facebook post, Holland mistakenly concluded

Alonso had been kicked off the team and blasted the move.

Kelly quickly dropped Holland from the team, citing a

violation of team rules.
