Penn State says it has received a federal subpoena related to a former assistant football coach accused of molesting boys and is cooperating with the request.

University spokeswoman Lisa Powers said Thursday federal prosecutors based in Harrisburg this month sought "certain information" about Jerry Sandusky, a charity for children Sandusky founded, the university and three administrators. Sandusky denies charges he molested 10 boys.

Powers says she can't provide details about the subpoena, citing an ongoing investigation.

The U.S. attorney's office and a spokeswoman for university athletic director Tim Curley and former vice president Gary Schultz have no comment. Messages left for The Second Mile charity and former university president Graham Spanier haven't been returned.

Sandusky lawyer Joe Amendola says he learned of the subpoena from Harrisburg's The Patriot News, which first reported it Thursday.
