NCAA to probe Penn State athletics

Penn State has learned via letter from NCAA President Mark Emmert to university president Rodney Erickson that the governing body of collegiate sports will launch an investigation of the school’s athletic programs in the wake of allegations of sexual abuse by former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky and charges of perjury against to two senior university officials, former athletic director Tim Curley and Gary Schultz, the school’s former senior vice president for business and finance.

“I am writing to notify you that the NCAA will examine Penn State’s exercise of institutional control over its intercollegiate athletics programs, as well as the actions, and inactions, of relevant responsible personnel,” Emmert wrote. “We recognize that there are ongoing federal and state investigations and the NCAA does not intend to interfere with those probes.”
