 Video: NCAA announces Pennsylvania State University sanctions
The National Collegiate Athletic Association announced its sanctions against Penn State University on Monday. 
  • $60 million fine, the average annual revenue of the football program. This payment will go into an endowment for external programs preventing child sexual abuse or assisting victims and may not be used to fund such programs at Penn State.
  • Banned the football team from the postseason for 4 years
  • Penn State will forfeit all football wins from 1998-2011 (112 wins) and thus strips the late Joe Paterno of the title of winningest coach in major football college history. Paterno moves from 409 wins to 298 (298-136-3) and moves from 1st to 12th on the winningest NCAA football coach list and 5th on the NCAA Division I FBS all-time list. Florida State University coach Bobby Bowden will now hold the top spot with 377 wins.
  • Penn State must reduce 10 initial and 20 total scholarships each year for a 4-year period. NCAA Division I scholarship limit is 85.
  • Athletic department on probation for 5 years
Players may transfer and play immediately at other schools

The Big Ten also announced sanctions for Penn State

The Big Ten Council of Presidents and Chancellors announced:

  • Penn State will be banned from participating in the conference championship game for 4 years, concurrent with the NCAA’s bowl ban.
  • Penn State will receive no funds from the Big Ten’s shared bowl revenues, estimated to be about $13 million.
The Big Ten Conference
1. Censure: The Big Ten Conference hereby condemn this conduct and officially censure Penn State.
2. Probation: The Big Ten Conference will be a party to the Athletic Integrity Agreement referenced in the NCAA release, and will work closely with the NCAA and Penn State to ensure complete compliance with its provisions over the 5 year term of the Agreement.
3. Ineligibility: As referenced in the NCAA release, Penn State’s football team will be ineligible for postseason bowl games. It will also be ineligible for Big Ten Conference Championship Games for 4 years, a period of time that runs concurrently with the NCAA postseason bowl ban imposed this morning.
4. Fine: Because Penn State will be ineligible for bowl games for the next four years, it will therefore be ineligible to receive its share of Big Ten Conference bowl revenues over those same 4 years. Estimated to be approximately $13 million, will be donated to established charitable organizations in Big Ten communities dedicated to the protection of children.
