Unless you’ve been living under a rock or possibly out of the country this past week (and let’s be real, we wouldn't blame you), you’re well aware that soon-to-be former Oregon co-offensive coordinator David Reaves was arrested over the weekend for a DUII. It was reported that there was a passenger in the car, and we now know who that passenger was.

Jimmie Dougherty was hired as Oregon’s wide receivers coach on December 23 after working as an offensive analyst for Jim Harbaugh at Michigan.

Dougherty was not charged in this incident and the school has not said if he will be disciplined.

Reaves is scheduled to appear in Eugene Municipal Court on Wednesday, and we could possibly learn more about what led to Reaves deciding to drink and drive and why Dougherty was with him.

The question I'm sure many are asking is why Dougherty didn't stop Reaves from drinking and driving. All we know for sure is that Reaves was intoxicated enough to be charged with a DUII. The rest is pure speculation at this point, so I’m going to refrain from giving my two cents until we know the full story here, because anything else would be unfair to both Reaves and Dougherty.
