Washington defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi released a statement Thursday afternoon via Twitter:

“Husky Nation Thank you for your amazing support! I love this university and appreciate the great fans. I won’t let these sorts of untrue attacks break my focus! I look forward to an honest & thorough investigation. It hurts to read these sorts of things, despite their suspicious motives, but I have faith in the process. Awesome practice this am. Laser focus for win #9. Flight Hunger Bowl here we come!!”

Lupoi’s status with Washington has not changed, UW interim coach Marques Tuiasosopo said Thursday morning.

A Los Angeles Times report on Wednesday detailed allegations that Lupoi paid for tutoring and online classes for a Lynnwood recruit. Mike Davis, a former assistant track coach at Lynnwood involved in the alleged exchange of cash, told The Seattle Times that he has a meeting Friday with the NCAA, UW and USC.

In May 2012, UW confirmed that Lupoi committed a secondary recruiting violation and was limited in his ability to recruit on the road that spring. That violation occurred when Lupoi “publicized the visit of a prospective student-athlete who ultimately did not commit to UW by confirmation information about the recruit to members of the DawgPack student section at a men’s basketball game.”
