Jerry Sandusky Scandal

Sandusky, Schultz pension payouts public

HARRISBURG — A newspaper said the former Penn State assistant coach accused of sexually abusing young boys is collecting a $59,000 annual pension, while a former university administrator charged with not reporting suspected abuse is getting about five times that much.

The (Harrisburg) Patriot News said Jerry Sandusky also collected a $148,000 lump-sum payment when he retired from the university in 1999. Former Vice President Gary Schultz raked in a $422,000 lump sum payment upon retirement in 2009. His yearly pension exceeds $330,000.

Schultz returned to the job this fall as the university searched for a replacement.

The paper said Athletic Director Tim Curley isn’t a part of the State Employees’ Retirement System. It said former President Graham Spanier isn’t, either.
