A Texas high school football coach whose team won its last game 91-0 said a district investigation has found "no grounds" to support a bullying complaint filed by a parent of the losing team.

Aledo High School coach Tim Buchanan said Wednesday administrators told him they found no evidence of bullying before or during Friday's lopsided victory over Fort Worth Western Hills.

State law required the district to investigate the complaint. A copy of the complaint obtained by The Associated Press accused coaches of "not easing up when the game was in hand.

The parent, whose name was redacted, said in the complaint, "I did not know what to say on the ride home" to his or her son to explain the behavior of the coaches.
