Erickson took NCAA’s deal rather than accept ‘death penalty’
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (MCT) — Faced with the prospect of the death penalty for his school’s football program, Rodney Erickson signed the agreement announced Monday by the NCAA calling for severe sanctions against Penn State.
Those penalties include the loss of scholarships for football, a four-year postseason ban and NCAA probation for five years, a $60 million fine and the vacating of all wins from 1998 through 2011. Those sanctions were based on the Freeh report concerning Penn State’s reaction to the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal, including a reported cover-up by top university officials.
