Jerry Sandusky Scandal

Statement by Penn State football coach Bill O’Brien on NCAA sanctions

I knew when I accepted the position that there would be tough times ahead. But I am committed for the long term to Penn State and our student athletes.

Today we receive a very harsh penalty from the NCAA and as Head Coach of the Nittany Lions football program, I will do everything in my power to not only comply, but help guide the University forward to become a national leader in ethics, compliance and operational excellence.

I knew when I accepted the position that there would be tough times ahead. But I am committed for the long term to Penn State and our student athletes.

I was then and I remain convinced that our student athletes are the best in the country.

I could not be more proud to lead this team and these courageous and humble young men into the upcoming 2012 season.

Together we are committed to building a better athletic program and university.
