The NFL has announced that the independent review by Mary Jo White and the Debevoise law firm into allegations by former Browns’ coach Hue Jackson has concluded and the allegations could not be substantiated.

In early February, Jackson had made comments on social media implying he was paid to lose games when he was the Browns’ head coach.

Jackson made the accusations just after former Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores filed a discrimination class-action lawsuit against the NFL and three teams.

A league spokesperson told CNN last month,”We can confirm the NFL engaged former [Securities and Exchange Commission] chair Mary Jo White in February to look into allegations made by Hue Jackson against the Cleveland Browns.”
