Three Players Leave Oregon Football Program

Garrett Embry

EUGENE – Three players from the University of Oregon's 2009 football team have departed from the program, according to the Ducks' head coach Chip Kelly.

Kelly confirmed Monday that wide receiver Garrett Embry, as well as defensive linemen Andrew Iupati and Terrance Montgomery, will not return for the 2010 season.

Iupati , who did not play in any games last fall as a redshirt after transferring from Golden West Community College, has transferred to Humboldt State University (Arcata, CA), where he is expected to have two seasons of eligibility remaining for the NCAA Division II Lumberjacks.

Embry was formally dismissed from the program on Jan. 8 for a violation of team rules, while Montgomery has decided to give up football. Both players remain enrolled at Oregon.

Embry has played in 25 games as a reserve receiver and regular on special teams over the course of the last two seasons, catching two passes for a loss of 4 yards and posting nine tackles in 12 games in 2009. Montgomery was credited with one forced fumble and two tackles, including one quarterback sack, in his lone season at Oregon after transferring from Reedley (CA) College last spring.
