Move along, folks. Nothing to see here.'s Bruce Feldman confirms that the NCAA has told Washington that there will be no penalties against former defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi or the school following an investigation into the program.

The Seattle Times first reported that the NCAA has contacted the school to let it know that there will be no penalties against either the school or Lupoi.

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."

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

Lupoi, who joined the Washington staff under Steve Sarkisian in 2012 was not retained by new Washington coach Chris Petersen.
