Penn St grad to take over VP job amid sex scandal
STATE COLLEGE, Pa.—Penn State has settled on a replacement for an administrator who left his job after being charged with lying to a grand jury investigating child sex abuse allegations against former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
David Gray will take over as senior vice president for finance and business starting in February, pending approval next month by university trustees.
Gray is a Penn State graduate. He returns to his alma mater after working at the University of Massachusetts.
Penn State was in the midst of its search when interim vice president Gary Schultz returned to retirement after being charged last month with perjury and failing to report to police a 2002 allegation against Sandusky.
Schultz and Sandusky have maintained their innocence. Schultz is next due in court Friday in Harrisburg.
