The NCAA will not penalize the University of Washington football program or former UW assistant coach Tosh Lupoi after the governing body’s six-week investigation into allegations that Lupoi had paid for tutoring for Lynnwood High School’s Andrew Basham, according to our news partner, the Seattle Times.

Tom Hosty, the NCAA’s Director of Enforcement, notified University of Washington President Michael Young in a formal letter delivered Monday that the NCAA has “now completed the inquiry into those matters” and that “the enforcement staff does not believe that further action is warranted” in the investigation.
