Former Oregon running back Derek Loville was sentenced to 15 months in prison on Wednesday for his involvement in an international drug ring, according to The San Diego Union-Tribune.
Loville also was fined $5,000 for his connection to ODOG Enterprise, a drug trafficking operation run by former USC walk-on tight end Owen Hanson.
Loville’s defense attorney, Francisco Sanchez, told the Union-Tribune that the 48-year-old Loville turned to pain pills and eventually Hanson’s supply of narcotics “to aid with his pain and just to be functional” following his time in football.
Loville rushed for more than 2,000 yards and 26 touchdowns in his final two seasons at Oregon (1988, 1989).
Despite not getting drafted, his NFL career lasted nine years. He played for the 49ers, Broncos and Seahawks, and won three Super Bowls.
