SEATTLE — The University of Washington and former assistant football coach Tosh Lupoi have reached agreement on a mutual separation that will pay him $300,000.
The school confirmed the agreement Wednesday.
Lupoi was the defensive-line coach under previous head coach Steve Sarkisian. Washington is looking into allegations of recruiting violations against Lupoi, first reported by the Los Angeles Times. The school said on Dec. 30 that Lupoi was being reassigned within the athletic department, but gave no details on what his duties will be.
Lupoi took to Twitter on Dec. 19 saying allegations he broke NCAA rules by paying for a football recruit’s online classes and tutoring are “untrue attacks.”
Lupoi spent two seasons at Washington after four years at California.
