The Circus Returns To Town

From StateCollege.com: The Penn State board Executive Committee will meet Friday to approve formally the removal of Joe Paterno as football coach and the departure of Graham Spanier as president, the university announced Thursday.

The board's Executive Committee members are Jim Broadhurst, Michael DiBerardinis, university President Rodney Erickson, Kenneth Frazier, board Chairman Steve Garban, Ed Hintz, Keith Masser, Linda Strumpf and board Vice Chairman John Surma. Many of the committee members are expected to attend the Friday meeting by phone, Rushton said. It's scheduled to begin at 8 a.m. at the Nittany Lion Inn.
