San Diego, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Pioneer Football League said Tuesday it did not impose additional sanctions on the University of San Diego beyond its voluntary removal from last year's league championship race.

Last November, the USD athletics program announced the way it was awarding need-based financial aid to football players was incompatible with PFL rules.

The Toreros won seven of their eight games against league opponents, but their record was not counted in the standings. Butler and Marist shared the title, also with 7-1 league records. Butler then earned the league's first automatic bid to the FCS playoffs on a tiebreaker.

"The PFL enforcement committee, comprised of three league presidents and two athletics directors, met recently to adjudicate this case and voted unanimously to accept San Diego's self-imposed postseason ban without further penalty," PFL commissioner Patty Viverito said. "This decision was reached with the understanding that the leniency was due to mitigating factors - in essence, because of the swift, thorough and forthright manner in which San Diego managed the self-discovered rules violation in every way possible."

Said San Diego athletic director Ky Snyder: "We are disappointed that this took place but are pleased this matter is resolved and we can now move forward."
