Investigation of Utah swim coach finished

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- An independent investigation found that the University of Utah should have fired former swim coach Greg Windlow in early 2012 for alcohol problems that were corrosive to the entire team.
 
The review, however, concludes that Winslow did not physically abuse or engage in sexual activity with any of his swimmers during his six-year tenure.
 
A pair of outside attorneys cleared him of racial discrimination. Investigators looking into allegations of psychological abuse say training methods can be subjective, and they didn't take a position on Winslow's practices.
 
University officials are discussing other findings at a news conference.

The University suspended Winslow in February after learning of allegations that he sexually abused a teenage girl he coached in Arizona six years. The school later decided to cut ties with Winslow, and has since hired a new coach.
 
Arizona prosecutors decided not to press charges against Winslow, saying they didn't find sufficient evidence. Arizona State University police said there were no witnesses or other victims to corroborate the girl's allegations.
