(Harrisburg) -- The former U.S. senator brought in to monitor changes at Penn State says it should keep doing what it's been doing, and that a further loosening of NCAA sanctions is possible next year.
Athletics integrity monitor George Mitchell briefly addressed university trustees today, saying the school needs to maintain the quality of effort it has been demonstrating.
At Mitchell's recommendation, the NCAA in September decided to more quickly restore football scholarships taken away temporarily last year as part of a consent decree.
The NCAA took action against the university over the school's handling of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation case.
Mitchell didn't tell the trustees which other penalties might be reduced. Penn State is paying a $60 million fine and serving a multi-year ban on postseason play.
