The NCAA has handed down severe punishments to Penn State’s football program in the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse cases. A $60M sanction has been imposed on PSU, and the funds must be paid into endowment for external programs preventing child sexual abuse. The NCAA has also imposed a 4-year football postseason ban, PSU must vacate all wins from 1998-2011, totalling 112 games, and they have been stripped of 10 scholarships per season for the next four years.
Sandusky was convicted in June of 45 counts of sexual abuse against 10 boys, and is awaiting sentencing. A report released earlier this month cited Joe Paterno, Penn State President Graham Spanier and Athletic Director Tim Curley failing to report accusations against Sandusky as far back as 1998, in order to protect the reputation of the football program.
