Jerry Sandusky Scandal

NCAA to announce decision Monday about Penn State's punishment

The NCAA isn’t waiting long to announce its punishment for Penn State.

The organization announced shortly after the Joe Paterno fell today that it will be holding a 9 a.m. press conference Monday to announce “corrective and punitive measures” for Penn State. The press conference will be held at the NCAA’s offices in Indianapolis.

NCAA President Mark Emmert, and Executive Committee chairman and Oregon State President Ed Ray, are participating in the announcement.

A NCAA spokeswoman declined further comment about the conference.

Emmert said in PBS interview last week that the organization is examining all of its options in response to Penn State’s handling of the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
