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 comment on the litigation.
Governor Corbett has filed a federal antitrust lawsuit seeking to have the penalties thrown out.
