(State College) -- The independent monitor of Penn State's adherence to NCAA sanctions says the school is pressing forward "in good faith in fulfilling its obligations."

Former U.S. Senator George Mitchell has delivered his third quarterly report as the independent athletics integrity monitor. He cited the school's appointments of an athletics integrity officer and an ethics and compliance director as highlights the last three months.

Mitchell took on the role after the NCAA slammed Penn State last summer with landmark penalties for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case.

University president Rodney Erickson says Mitchell's latest update validates the significant reforms over the past year.

The report comes a day after the family of former coach Joe Paterno and others connected to Penn State filed a lawsuit seeking to overturn the sanctions.
