Wisconsin ultimately cleared Ryan after investigating, and maintains that his abrupt retirement was based on his own decisions rather than the alleged affair becoming public. In an attempt to do some digging of their own, Deadspin tried to recreate the school’s investigation, and failed to produce anything against Ryan that shows he used school finances to pay for his mistress.
“We found no indication in the official records that Ryan was reimbursed for any expenses other than his own, though our records are incomplete,” the report stated.
