Penn State Scandal Claims University President

New York Daily News:

Penn State’s trustees have reportedly given university president Graham Spanier two options: quit or be fired.

The Patriot-News of Harrisburg is reporting that the trustees have told Spanier that he must resign Wednesday, or he will be ousted at an emergency meeting scheduled for Wednesday night.

The grand jury report that detailed the allegations against former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky said Spanier was told that Mike McQueary, then a graduate assistant and now the Nittany Lions’ receivers coach and recruiting coordinator, had seen Sandusky with a boy in a Penn State shower in 2002.

According to the report, Spanier said he was not told that the incident involved sexual abuse.
