NCAA statement on Penn State response letter

On November 17, NCAA President Mark Emmert sent a letter to Penn State President Rodney Erickson regarding the alleged sexual abuse of children and the alleged response by Penn State officials. The letter raised questions concerning the school’s compliance with the NCAA’s institutional control and ethics policies and application of its bylaws. Today, Penn State posted their response letter requesting additional time to respond to the questions. Below is a statement regarding the letter and request:

“The NCAA is actively collecting information from the Penn State Special Committee Investigative Counsel during its ongoing investigation to determine our next steps.  Although this information will aid in our real time review, once the counsel’s work is complete the University likely will need to formally respond to the questions raised by President Emmert.”
