Mitchell says he’s receiving full cooperation from Penn State

STATE COLLEGE — The former U.S. senator overseeing Penn State’s response to NCAA sanctions for the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal says he’s received full cooperation from the university.
George Mitchell reiterated the findings from his initial report in November in addressing the school trustees today. He says Penn State is off to a good start adhering to the NCAA athletics integrity agreement.
The penalties handed down in July included a four-year bowl ban, strict scholarship cuts and a $60 million fine. Mitchell and his law firm will serve as a third-party monitor through 2017.
Mitchell says pending lawsuits against the NCAA over the sanctions have no bearing on his work and declined to comment on the litigation.
Gov. Tom Corbett has filed a federal antitrust lawsuit seeking to have the penalties thrown out.
