NCAA not to penalize Washington or Tosh Lupoi

Published Add your comment

The NCAA has contacted University of Washington to let it know that there will be no penalties against either the school or Tosh Lupoi, according to the Seattle Times.

In December it was reported that Mike Davis, an assistant track and field coach, alleged that Lupoi had paid $4,500 in cash for tutoring services and online classes for recruit Andrew Basham.

Basham signed with Washington in February as part of its 2013 recruiting class, but did not qualify academically. Lupoi called the allegations "untrue attacks" in a statement he released on Twitter.

A letter from NCAA Director of Enforcement, Tom Hosty, stated "the enforcement staff does not believe that further action is warranted," though the NCAA may repoen the investigation "if additional information is developed."

Lupoi, who joined the Washington staff under Steve Sarkisian in 2012 was not retained by new Washington coach Chris Petersen and paid Lupoi a $300,000 severance pay.
