Whether Penn State trustee Steve Garban will remain on the board continues to be a heated issue, and a change could come as early as today, according to university sources.
Garban, a State College-area resident, was chairman of the board last year and was a target for criticism for how he handled child sex abuse charges against Jerry Sandusky and the fallout that followed.
Garban did not seek the chairmanship position again this year.
When reached for comment, board Chairwoman Karen Peetz said she was unable to confirm that Garban was stepping down.
A source with knowledge of the situation said Garban could step down as early as today.
A woman who answered Garban’s home phone said he was unavailable.
Garban holds one of nine alumni-elected positions on the board. His term expires in 2013.
