Apparently Glon hid allegations of sex abuse of assistant on plane flight with another coach for 3 years (until husband of victim notified Sandy Barbour)-and then Penn State fired assistant and put Glon on probation and then reinstated him— now Univ being sued by former female All American Fencer for lack of response to Compliance Complaints against coach. Same admin that fired Paterno who did report now keeps a coach who didn’t report??

Does PSU admin live in a silo?? Hiding assistant coach allegations of sexual abuse as head coach is enough for termination at almost any higher level job in US. Is Univ digging in to minimize other lawsuits?? PSU Admin never fails to disappoint.

Some on the board obviously wanted him to build on his resume so Jim Jordan would hire him for his campaign manager. The midterms are just around the corner.

Does anybody else think that there are too many part time board of trustees at all large universities to be effective at genuine oversight?

one of Sandy's 150 Asst Ad's following up on this matter
Probably not until 10 or 15 of the assistants to the assistants have made a public statement about the matter just to test the waters to see how hot the issue might be. The upper level assistants have to have some way to deny having any responsibility.
