Jeremiah Taeatafa Masoli (born August 24, 1988 in San Francisco, California) is a college football quarterback for the Oregon Ducks football team.[1] Masoli has been suspended for the entire 2010 Ducks football season following his guilty plea to a misdemeanor burglary charge.


College career



Masoli transferred from CCSF to the University of Oregon in 2008. In 2008 for the Ducks, Masoli emerged from the 3rd string quarterback to starter as injuries plagued the depth chart. He threw for 13 touchdowns and 5 interceptions, while also rushing for 10 touchdowns.[2] His 714 rushing yards in 2008 set an Oregon record for quarterbacks. Masoli led the team to a 42-31 victory against Oklahoma State in the 2008 Holiday Bowl.[3][4]


He also appeared on the cover of the August 2009 issue of Sports Illustrated, along with center Jordan Holmes.[5][6]

Masoli was named to the Davey O'Brien Award watch list for the 2009 college football season.[7] Masoli was College Football Performance Awards National Performer of the Week (vs. Arizona) and one of four Ducks included on the College Football Performance Awards in their midseason trophy list.[8]

In October 2009, Masoli helped lead the Ducks to an upset over the then #5 USC Trojans with 222 passing yards, 164 rushing yards and two touchdowns.[9]

Masoli helped the Ducks win the Pac-10 Championship, advancing them to the Rose Bowl where they lost to the Ohio State Buckeyes 26-17. Masoli was 9/20 passing with 81 yards and an interception, while rushing for 9 yards and a touchdown.[10][11]


Masoli was suspended for the entire 2010 season after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor burglary charge. He will be allowed to practice with the team, and may redshirt during the 2010 season. He will be eligible to play in the 2011 season should he satisfy the requirements set forth by Chip Kelly.[12][13]
