UNIONTOWN, Pa. — Penn State trustees say several tentative settlements have been made with men who claim former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky sexually abused them.
The board voted Friday to authorize members of a committee to approve settlements in the matter.
The deals are limited to a range of dollar values that the board received in a closed-door session.
The school says it won’t be commenting until the deals have been made final, which could happen in the coming weeks.
Sandusky is serving a lengthy prison sentence after being convicted last year of 45 counts of child sexual abuse.
