Senator overseeing compliance makes recommendations
By: Marc Stempka
UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- Some changes could be proposed to the sanctions imposed upon Penn State University in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal, officials announced Friday morning.
Sen. George Mitchell said during an address to the Penn State Board of Trustees that he’s suggesting the National Collegiate Athletic Association lift some more of the sanctions.
Mitchell, who is being paid by the NCAA to oversee PSU’s compliance with the sanctions, told the board that he continues to work with the NCAA and the Big Ten Athletic Conference to develop a multi-layer approach to possibly ending more sanctions.
Mitchell would not indicate what other sanctions would be considered for repeal.
Mitchell said Penn State has implemented just about all of the recommendations outlined by the NCAA and in the Freeh Report, the report compiled by former FBI Director Louis Freeh and his staff and adopted by the trustees that identified recommended changes for the school to make in wake of the scandal.
In September, officials announced the restoration of several football scholarships to the PSU football team over the next several years. Those scholarships were stripped from PSU by the NCAA as part of the sanctions.
Other sanctions given to the school included a $60 million fine, the forfeiture of hundreds of football victories and a four-year bowl ban.
Mitchell said he’s aware that other major universities in the country who are facing sanctions are monitoring what is happening at PSU as a model of how they will respond to the sanctions.
