Acting AD issues statement on Penn State scandal

Mark Sherburne, the acting athletic director at Penn State, released a statement today on the PSU athletics website regrading the sex-crimes charges against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.

" The Penn State athletics family is devastated by the details in the Grand Jury presentment. Our hearts go out to the children involved and their families," Sherburne, the replacement for Tim Curley, who stepped down amid the allegations, said.

"Every day we are entrusted with the lives of young people, and we do not - nor have we ever - taken that trust lightly. We are outraged that a valued trust has been broken. We can promise you that we are doing everything in our power to restore that broken trust. Everyone within athletics - coaches, administrators, staff and student-athletes - are committed to this pledge."
