David Joyner to Remain Athletic Director

Despite widespread message board rumors and unsourced Twitter rumblings, Penn State announced today that acting athletic director David Joyner would remain AD for the duration of President Rodney Erickson’s tenure.

“I have confidence in Dr. Joyner and want him to continue as part of my leadership team while I am president,” said Erickson in a statement.

President Erickson had previously affirmed his commitment to Joyner, but rumors ran rampant after Bill O’Brien interviewed with the Browns and the Eagles that the head coach was unhappy with Joyner and that a condition of him staying would be Joyner’s removal.

That won’t be happening, at least for another season.
