Michigan State University say the National Collegiate Athletic Association has ended its inquiry into the school’s handling of sexual misconduct complaints.

The school announced the end of the inquiry Thursday.

The NCAA began its review in January. That stemmed from revelations that former MSU sports doctor Larry Nassar sexually assaulted his patients for decades. The organization later broadened its inquiry after an ESPN program unearthed concerns over how the men’s football and basketball programs handled possible sexual misconduct of their players.

But now MSU says it has been cleared by the NCAA – and no violations were found. Athletic Director Bill Beekman released a statement. He says that as it relates to student-athlete conduct, they’re committed to following all appropriate policies and procedures.
