Penn State Scandal: David Joyner Named Acting Athletic Director

In the wake of a scandal that has gutted its athletic department, Penn State has named David Joyner its interim athletic director. Joyner replaces Tim Curley, who was placed on administrative leave and has been arrested and charged with perjury for his role in an alleged cover-up of Jerry Sandusky's molestation of young boys.

Joyner is a member of Penn State's Board of Trustees, and has been since 2000. He has deep roots in the Penn State community, was an All-American football player and wrestler in 1971, and received both an undergraduate and a medical degree from Penn State.

Joyner specializes in sports medicine, and is listed as the Corporate Medical Director of Occupational Athletics, Inc. in a bio on that company's website. Joyner has also served on multiple committee within the United States Olympic Committee, including on its Sports Medicine Committee and Anti-Doping Committee, and currently serves as the co-chairman of its Sports Medicine Advisory Committee.
