Penn State changes get 'good start'

  • Print

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- A former U.S. senator brought in to monitor changes being made at Penn State after the child sex abuse scandal there says it's "off to a very good start."

George Mitchell's first quarterly report as Penn State's athletics integrity monitor was released Friday. He notes there's a looming deadline to complete a set of reforms, including implementation of a college sports code of conduct.

The former Maine U.S. senator is overseeing the university's actions under a compliance agreement made this summer with the Indiana-based NCAA and the Big Ten Conference.

A former Penn State assistant football coach has been convicted of abusing boys, some on campus. The university agreed to pay $60 million and suffer a four-year ban on post-season play.

Mitchell says Penn State appears to be making a good faith effort to make the changes.
