The board will vote on the NCAA sanctions, similarly to the way they handled in November, Joe Paterno's firing and Graham Spanier's dismissal as president of the university.
When the Jerry Sandusky scandal broke, the university acted immediately and then took a full vote several weeks after Paterno and Spanier were dismissed. Trustees voted by phone and are scheduled to do so again on Sunday.
Nearly three weeks ago the sanctions were imposed by the NCAA claiming that Penn State allowed Jerry Sandusky to abuse boys at Penn State. Erickson approved the sanctions saying it was in the best interest of the university to do so and move forward.
However, several trustees, mostly alumni board members, said they were upset that they were not informed of the sanctions before they were approved.
Shortly after the announcement on Thursday, WTAJ heard from Anthony Lubrano, an alumni trustee, he says he wants to try to make sure all trustees are in person for this meeting.
At least one trustee, we've heard from, Joel Myers says he will be out of town this weekend. The sanctions that Penn State has been addressing include, a four-year bowl ban, a reduction of football scholarships, a $60 million fine and all football wins from 1998 to 2011 to be eliminated.
