The NCAA found that the DII school's football coach had secret bank accounts and was giving players special benefits. Although they were placed on probation and had their wins vacated, they will not lose any scholarships and will not be barred from the playoffs. "According to the Division II Committee on Infractions' report, in 2009, [head coach Bill] O'Boyle opened a private bank account for proceeds from the football program's golf tournaments. He used the account for football and personal expenses, including paying a traffic ticket. He also used two other outside accounts to pay concession workers and for recruiting expenses." O'Boyle and the Athletic Director Brad Smith were found to have both known about the violations and both have moved on from the school. Chadron State produced NFL Running Back Danny Woodhead in an era where DII players rarely make the the NFL.
