Moevao's appeal is denied by NCAA

Oregon State University's appeal to the NCAA for an additional year of eligibility for quarterback Lyle Moevao has been denied, it was announced Thursday.

OSU officials were seeking an extension of the five-year NCAA eligibility case for Moevao, who played just one down last season in a Sept. 26, 2009 game vs. Arizona. Moevao underwent surgery in February of 2009 after injuring his right shoulder during the 2008 season. He worked himself back onto the two-deep depth chart during the course of last season before suffering a right foot injury in practice in late October that ended his year.

"We are all very disappointed in the outcome of Lyle's appeal for the sixth year," OSU head coach Mike Riley said. "We will of course miss him, both as a person and as a player on our team. He not only won a lot of games as our quarterback, including some of our biggest wins in history, but he also was the heart and soul personality in our program."

Moevao's appeal was denied due to him not demonstrating the loss of two seasons beyond his control, as defined by current NCAA legislation. Moevao redshirted in 2006 after transferring to OSU from El Camino Community College in California.

The 2009 graduate in sociology ends his collegiate career as a three-year letterman for the Beavers and with an 11-4 record as a starter. He ranks seventh all-time at OSU for passing yards with 3,410 and ninth for passing touchdowns with 21. The co-team captain was a Pac-10 Conference Honorable Mention selection as a junior.

The Beavers have four quarterbacks on the current roster; sophomore Ryan Katz, junior Peter Lalich and redshirt-freshmen Jack Lomax and Cody Vaz. True-freshman Sean Mannion will join the team in August. The Beavers begin spring practice March 29.
