Penn State president Spanier releases statement

Posted by Adam Jacobi

In the wake of charges of perjury and failure to report abuse for Penn State athletic director Tim Curley and VP/treasurer Gary Schultz in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky case, PSU president Graham Spanier issued a statement in full-throated support of the two administrators. Here's the statement in full:

The allegations about a former coach are troubling, and it is appropriate that they be investigated thoroughly. Protecting children requires the utmost vigilance.

With regard to the other presentments, I wish to say that Tim Curley and Gary Schultz have my unconditional support. I have known and worked daily with Tim and Gary for more than 16 years. I have complete confidence in how they have handled the allegations about a former University employee.

Tim Curley and Gary Schultz operate at the highest levels of honesty, integrity and compassion. I am confident the record will show that these charges are groundless and that they conducted themselves professionally and appropriately.

Curley and Schultz are expected to turn themselves in on Monday.
