Tim Curley, Gary Schultz Step Down

Prior to their arraignments Monday in Harrisburg on charges of perjury and failure to report abuse of a child, Penn State Director of Athletics Tim Curley and Interim Senior Vice President for Finance and Business Gary Schultz have been removed from their respective posts

Curley asked to be placed on administrative leave, a move that was approved by Penn State's Board of Trustees at an emergency meeting last night at Univeristy Park.  Senior Associate Athletic Director Mark Sherburne will serve in Curley's position while charges are pending against Curley. 

Schultz is resigning to defend himself against the criminal charges, then going back into retirement (he had earlier retired from the same position, only to later return on an interim basis).

Bill Mahon, vice president for university relations (essentially Penn State's public relations apparatus), reported that the Board of Trustees did not consider asking Graham Spanier or Joe Paterno to resign. 

Spanier issued a statement noting, "The protection of children is of paramount importance.  The university will take a number of actions moving forward to increase the safety and security within our facilities and make everyone aware of the protocols in place for handling these issues."
