NCAA Task Force to Oversee $60M Penn State Fine

A new NCAA task force will come up with guidelines for how to distribute the record $60 million fine that Penn State has agreed to pay in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

The money will fund programs designed to combat child sexual abuse and help victims around the country.

The 10-member task force was announced Tuesday. The group will set policy and hire a third-party administrator who will choose which nonprofit groups receive the money each year.

One prominent Pennsylvania politician, House Democratic Leader Frank Dermody, wants the NCAA keep all of the funds in state.

The NCAA imposed tough sanctions on Penn State over its handling of sex-abuse allegations against Sandusky, a retired assistant football coach convicted of abusing 10 boys over 15 years.
