Penn State Response to NCAA Expected Within Days

On July 17, 2012, Penn State University announced it will respond within days to the NCAA’s demand for information. The NCAA is currently debating whether the institution could face penalties in the aftermath of the child sex abuse scandal involving former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. In a report from the associated press, university president Rodney Erikson stated, “he doesn’t want to ‘jump to conclusions’ about possible sanctions after the head of the NCAA declared the so-called death penalty has not been ruled out.”

The NCAA, whose investigation will likely include a look into institutional control and ethical conduct violations, indicated to the institution that they would like a response to the Freeh Report as soon as possible. On Monday night, NCAA president Mark Emmert addressed the matter and warned he will not take “anything off the table” if there’s a finding that the institution violated NCAA legislation.
