The NCAA will levy “corrective and punitive measures” against Penn State University Monday morning in light of a child sex abuse scandal and alleged cover-up that have tarnished the reputations of both the school and its football program, the AP and other sources reported.
Details of those penalties were not released Sunday, but a source told CBS News that they would be “unprecedented.”
In a separate action, Penn State announced Sunday it was removing the statue of late football Coach Joe Paterno from outside the school’s stadium.
Paterno's legacy and the question of sanctions came up after an investigation led by former FBI Director Louis Freeh, which found four top Penn State officials helped conceal evidence that former coach Jerry Sandusky abused multiple minors. Sandusky was convicted of 45 counts of child sexual abuse involving 10 victims.
The NCAA is scheduled to reveal the sanctions at 9 a.m. ET Monday in Indianapolis.
