INDIANAPOLIS (WKOW) -- The NCAA says it will levy "corrective and punitive measures" against Penn State in the wake of the child sex-abuse scandal involving former football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.
The NCAA announced they will detail the sanctions Monday. No details were disclosed. NCAA President Mark Emmert and Ed Ray, the chairman of the NCAA's executive committee and Oregon State's president, will be at the news conference.
Sandusky is awaiting sentencing, after being convicted of 45 criminal counts for abusing 10 boys over a number of years. A report commissioned by Penn State found coach Joe Paterno and other school leaders had helped cover up allegations against Sandusky.
Emmert has not ruled out the possibility of shutting down the Penn State football program in the wake of the scandal.
