UW coach says allegations are 'untrue attacks'

SEATTLE (AP) Washington assistant coach Tosh Lupoi says allegations he broke NCAA rules by paying for a football recruit's online classes and tutoring are "untrue attacks."

The Huskies' defensive line coach posted on his Twitter account on Thursday: "I look forward to an honest & thorough investigation."

Washington confirmed on Wednesday that it is looking into allegations of recruiting violations against the Huskies' defensive line coach, first reported by the Los Angeles Times.

The Times reported Washington and Southern California, which recently hired head coach Steve Sarkisian away from Washington, are investigating whether Lupoi paid for tutoring and online classes for Andrew Basham, a former defensive lineman at Lynnwood High School in Washington. Basham signed a letter of intent with Washington in February, but didn't qualify academically to enroll.
