Penn State placed assistant football coach Mike McQueary on indefinite paid leave amid a probe into a child sex-abuse scandal, interim president Rodney Erickson said.
McQueary told a grand jury that he witnessed a sexual attack by former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky on a boy in the school’s locker room showers in 2002. Sandusky was charged with the sexual assault of eight boys from 1994 to 2009.
Erickson also told reporters he plans to appoint an ethics officer for the university.
