NEW YORK (AP) - Members of Penn State's board of trustees say the university has implemented a long list of changes as result of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.
They say the reforms have improved the university and might help them persuade the NCAA to reconsider its crippling penalties.
Board Chairman Keith Masser and longtime board member Joel Myers are touting the changes at Penn State since Sandusky's arrest, including cutting the governor and university president from the board.
Other changes they're describing are the hiring of an athletics integrity officer and training 16,000 people on child abuse reporting and 3,000 on the federal law that requires reporting campus crime.
Masser says Penn State has already fully implemented 76 recommendations in a university-commissioned report the board received a year ago.
