The Penn State scandal will almost assuredly result in quite a few firings, dismissals and resignations as more details emerge and meetings take place. The school's board of trustees has apparently already begun looking at possible replacements -- including former Pennsylvania governor Tom Ridge -- for school president Graham Spanier.
It wouldn't be a surprise to see Spanier out by the end of the weekend, especially if names like the former United States Secretary of Homeland Security are already being batted around as his successor, as according to ESPN's reports.
Penn State president Graham Spanier also has lost support among the trustees ahead of Friday's board meeting, the person said, although precisely how much has been unclear.
Late Tuesday, however, a source close to the situation told ESPN's Joe Schad that the board has weighed the possibility of having former Pennsylvania governor Tom Ridge replace the embattled Spanier.
The Board of Trustees has promised "swift, decisive action" regarding this matter so it seems something will be solved sooner rather than later.
