Penn State Won’t Renew Contract of Accused AD Curley
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Penn State will not renew the contract of athletic director Tim Curley, who has been on leave since being charged last year with perjury and failing to report a child sex abuse allegation against Jerry Sandusky.
University spokesman Dave La Torre says in a statement that the school has notified Curley his contract would not renewed when it expires in June. La Torre declined further comment Tuesday, citing a personnel issue.
Sandusky, the former assistant football coach, is serving a minimum 30-year sentence.
Curley and retired vice president Gary Schultz are scheduled to stand trial in January in Harrisburg on the perjury and failure to report charges. Both men have denied the allegations.
