(State College) -- Former U.S. Senator George Mitchell says Penn State is making steady progress in implementing the requirements outlined by the NCAA following sanctions for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.

Mitchell, the independent athletics integrity monitor, also says the university is making progress in implementing recommendations from Louis Freeh following the former FBI director's internal investigation into the scandal. The school has said the recommendations were designed to strengthen governance, compliance and reporting.

The NCAA last summer named Mitchell the independent athletics integrity monitor for the university after college sports' governing body levied strict sanctions.

Governor Corbett has filed a federal antitrust lawsuit seeking to get the penalties overturned. Mitchell has said the litigation has no bearing on his review.
