Probe finds no evidence of inappropriate relations

Posted: Updated:
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A law firm hired by the University of Tennessee to investigate whether a former school official had inappropriate relationships with student-athletes has issued a report saying it found no evidence supporting the allegation.

But the 28-page report released Friday by the university also says both Jenny Wright and another person refused to cooperate with the 13-month investigation into the specific accusations.

Wright was student affairs judicial director when fired in May for refusing to cooperate with a university investigation into whether she was having relationships with student-athletes. She said university administrators harassed and pressured her.

A university official says Tennessee already has made changes suggested by the report.

Her attorney issued a statement saying Wright is relieved Tennessee finally concluded its investigation into what he called "baseless allegations."
