Penn State University president Graham Spanier will be announced as resigned Wednesday night according to Nate Bauer of Blue White Illustrated. According to the report, Spanier has already submitted his resignation. The school's Board of Trustees will meet before the announcement, its third meeting this week.
After athletic director Tim Curley and vice president Gary Schultz, Spanier was deemed the next-most culpable in what appears to be a cover-up of former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky's sex crimes spree on Penn State's campus. Football coach Joe Paterno has also announced his retirement at the end of the season, though it remains to be seen whether he'll even be allowed to coach this Saturday.
While public opinion has weighed heavily on both Paterno and Spanier, the president has taken the brunt of criticism from students and fans.
