INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The same day the statue of former football coach Joe Paterno was taken down at Penn State University, the NCAA announced that it will levy "corrective and punitive measures" against the university in the wake of the child sex-abuse scandal involving Jerry Sandusky and a scathing report that found school leaders covered up allegations against the now-convicted former assistant football coach.
The NCAA released no details, saying they would be disclosed on Monday morning by NCAA President Mark Emmert and Ed Ray, the chairman of the NCAA's executive committee and Oregon State's president.
In an advisory for a news conference on the subject, the NCAA simply said: "WHAT: A press conference to announce NCAA corrective and punitive measures for The Pennsylvania State University."
Sandusky is awaiting sentencing after being convicted of 45 criminal counts for abusing 10 boys over a number of years. A report by former FBI Director Louis Freeh concluded that the late Paterno and three former administrators - President Graham Spanier, athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz - "repeatedly concealed critical facts relating to Sandusky's child abuse."
