Penn State trustees meet amid sex abuse case
Penn State trustees meet amid child sex abuse scandal that ousted Paterno, school president
By The Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) ' The Penn State board that fired football coach Joe Paterno and President Graham Spanier (SPAHN'-yur) is meeting amid a shake-up caused by a child sex abuse case against a former team assistant.

The trustees opened their meeting Friday morning with Chairman Steve Garban welcoming interim President Rod Erickson. Gov. Tom Corbett is also on hand to help the board navigate a course through the turmoil.

Garban pledged to support Erickson as the board works "for the future of this institution that we respect and love."

Paterno and Spanier were fired Wednesday in the fallout of a shocking grand jury report alleging repeated illicit contact between retired assistant coach Jerry Sandusky and boys as young as 10.

Many of the cases are alleged to have happened on Penn State's campus, where Sandusky maintained an office as an emeritus professor.
