A joint investigation between the FBI and state police found no evidence that the New Orleans Saints or General Manager Mickey Loomis intercepted opposing teams’ radio communications, authorities announced Monday, the Associated Press reports.

“We found no corroborating evidence that Mickey Loomis or anybody in the Saints was engaged in wiretapping or eavesdropping,” Col. Mike Edmonson of the Louisiana State Police said.

Allegations first surfaced that the Saints were eavesdropping in April, prompting the investigation.

The team has hired the firm of former FBI director Louis J. Freeh to conduct an independent probe.
