NCAA to Issue Sanctions Against Penn State : The Two-Way : NPR
More bad news for Penn State: The NCAA says it will issue sanctions Monday against the school over the child sex abuse scandal involving Jerry Sandusky.
The announcement came the same day the school removed the famed statue of legendary football coach Joe Paterno from outside the Penn State football stadium. Our colleague Eyder Peralta has written more about that move.
The Associated Press reported Sunday that the NCAA said it would levy “corrective and punitive measures” against Penn State over the scandal. On its Facebook page, the NCAA said it would outline those sanctions at a news conference Monday.
According to the AP: “NCAA President Mark Emmert hasn’t ruled out the possibility of shutting down the Penn State football program in the wake of the scandal, adding that he had ‘never seen anything as egregious.’”
