Penn State, which is not involved in the expected lawsuit against the NCAA, released a statement regarding the matter. The Paterno family also released a statement earlier this morning.
The University is committed to full compliance with the Consent Decree, the Athletics Integrity Agreement and the implementation of the Freeh report recommendations. We look forward to continuing to work with Sen. George Mitchell as the athletic integrity monitor for complete fulfillment of the Athletics Integrity Agreement. We recognize the important role that intercollegiate athletics provides for our student athletes and the wider University community. Penn State continues to move forward with an unwavering commitment to excellence and integrity in all aspects of our University and continues to be a world-class educational institution of which our students, faculty, staff and alumni can be justifiably proud.
