TULSA - An NCAA investigation into former University of Tulsa athletic director Ross Parmley officially came to a close Wednesday, and concluded no further action need be taken.
Parmley was fired in early December after a federal affidavit named the athletic director an "admitted gambler" involved in a high-profile illegal gambling operation out of Oklahoma City.

“Obviously, we are pleased with the ruling handed out by the NCAA today,” said TU President Steadman Upham. “The University of Tulsa maintains the highest commitment to following NCAA policies and regulations among our administration, coaches and student-athletes.”
Parmley joined the university in 2005 and was promoted to athletic director in January 2012. Tulsa named Parmley's replacement, former Eastern Michigan AD Derrick Gragg, last month (http://bit.ly/GraggTU).
