State College, Pa. • A 10-member task force has been named to come up with guidelines for how to distribute the record $60 million fine that Penn State has agreed to pay in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal, the NCAA said Tuesday.
The money will fund programs designed to combat child sexual abuse and help victims around the country. The task force will set policy and hire a third-party administrator who will choose which nonprofit groups receive the money each year.
Prominent Pennsylvania politicians including Republican Gov. Tom Corbett and House Democratic Leader Frank Dermody want the NCAA to keep all the funds in state.
