Penn State Needs More Time To Respond To NCAA

Sounds like Penn State needs even more lawyers:

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — With a Friday deadline looming, Penn State has asked for more time to respond to an NCAA inquiry over the university’s handling of accusations of child sex abuse against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

Penn State general counsel Cynthia Baldwin said in a letter to NCAA president Mark Emmert released Thursday that answers to the NCAA’s questions about the Sandusky case might come from other, separate probes already in progress. Among them is a university trustees investigation spearheaded by former FBI director Louis Freeh.

Baldwin spoke to Emmert and other NCAA staff by phone Nov. 23 about the concurrent inquiries, according to the letter dated Dec. 12.

“The university understands that the NCAA will continue to monitor these investigations and will have access to the report” from Freeh and the trustees, Baldwin said.

“At that time, the NCAA will determine if further response from the university is necessary,” she wrote before requesting more time.

Big Ten, NCAA, feds, state, county, the university. So many inquiries. So little time.
