The scandal involves the school's handling of allegations against Jerry Sandusky, 67, a former assistant football coach under head coach Joe Paterno. Sandusky was arrested Nov. 5 on charges of sexually abusing eight boys over a 15-year period.

Penn State officials have been criticized for a failure to act adequately after learning that Sandusky might have been abusing children. No one at the university alerted the police.
