With an NCAA investigation looming and a conviction of Jerry Sandusky in the books, the report investigating Penn State’s conduct prepared by Louis Freeh (“The Freeh Report”) was released last week. Freeh’s damaging account has sent shockwaves throughout the athletic community. According to the report, Freeh conducted over 400 interviews to arrive at the analysis and conclusions provided in the 267-page report. Although The Freeh Report is filled with quotes that have been widely reported, the most damaging aspect of the report relates to the knowledge of Sandusky’s behavior dating back to 1998. According to the report, Sandusky was investigated by state and university agencies for inappropriate conduct with boys during that time. The report continues that the athletic director, head football coach, vice president, and president of the institution were aware of the investigation, but continued to allow Sandusky to bring young boys to campus. In the coming days and weeks, I expect that those implicated in the report will point out limitations and errors described in the report.
