Penn State Scandal: Trustees To Meet Wednesday Morning To Discuss Graham Spanier, Joe Paterno

The Penn State Board Of Trustees had originally been scheduled to have its next meeting on Friday, but it now appears it will meet Wednesday morning to discuss Joe Paterno and Graham Spanier, Kevin McGuire reports.

In the meeting it is expected that the future of Penn State president Graham Spanier as well as the future of football coach Joe Paterno will be reviewed. ESPN had mentioned Wednesday through various outlets that former Pennsylvania Governor and United States Secretary of Homeland Security Tom Ridge is a possibility to replace Spanier as the university president.

It now looks like the board, normally a “rubber stamp” for Spanier, is poised to take serious action, perhaps by replacing Spanier. That the board is reportedly meeting Wednesday isn’t good news for Paterno, either. McGuire notes that there is the possibility Paterno could be removed right away, or that he might be allowed to coach through the end of the season.
