Jody Webb is back teaching physical education four days a week at Mountain View Elementary and one day at Hillcrest Elementary.
He returned Tuesday, Boise School District spokesman Dan Hollar confirmed.
The district placed the former Capital High wrestling coach on paid administrative leave Sept. 30 while the Boise Police Department investigated an accusation against Webb involving school funds.
In a police report obtained by the Idaho Statesman, at issue was a reimbursement check for $4,674.70 issued to Webb for a 2014 summer wrestling tournament trip. Webb’s request to be reimbursed $5,045.37 for a similar trip in 2015 was denied, prompting an investigation that alleged the Capital City Outlaws Wrestling Club had already paid Webb for those expenses.

The case review has been completed and Webb will not face charges, according to a Dec. 15 letter from Ada County Prosecutor Jan Bennetts.
“While there were understandable concerns raised about accounting problems, I have determined that there is insufficient evidence to prove criminal intent beyond a reasonable doubt,” Bennetts wrote. “At this time, we consider the investigation to be closed.”
The Boise School District is conducting its own investigation, and no timetable is available for when a decision could be made regarding Webb’s coaching status.
KUNA SENIOR COMMITS TO IDAHO STATE
KUNA SENIOR COMMITS TO IDAHO STATE
Jake Johnson committed Monday after making an official visit to Pocatello over the the weekend.
Kuna coach Ian Smart said it is the first full-ride scholarship for a Kuna football player in at least four seasons.
The 6-foot-6, 220-pound Johnson, a first-team selection in the 4A Southern Idaho Conference at wide receiver, will likely move to tight end.
He also had a scholarship offer from Idaho and Portland State, Smart said.
“His catch radius is incredible,” Smart said. “I know (Idaho State) was impressed with him on film and the things that he was able to do with the ball. ... They’re classifying him as a tight end, but they won’t use him as a traditional blocking tight end. They see a lot of potential in getting mismatches with him, which is going to be pretty fun for him in that system.”
