Penn State Trustees Voice Support For NCAA Action

Penn State trustees took no formal vote but the vast majority of members have voiced support for the university president’s acceptance of tough penalties imposed by the NCAA over the university’s handling of child molestation allegations against former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.

Board chairwoman Karen Peetz told fellow trustees during the Sunday conference call that the panel could not vote because 10 days’ notice of the meeting was required.

But more than two dozen members of the 32-member board voiced support for President Rodney Erickson’s decision and a desire to move forward, although many criticized the sanctions.

The NCAA on July 23 barred the school from postseason play for four years, fined it $60 million, stripped it of future scholarships and invalidated 112 of the football team’s wins.
