Penn State Defends Medical Changes after Report



Penn State Football coach Bill O'Brien is aggressively disputing suggestions raised in a report that player medical care has been compromised after the team doctor was replaced.
 
Speaking in an often angry tone, O'Brien told reporters in a conference call Wednesday that the health and safety of his players were his top priorities.
 

 
Penn State’s athletic department is disputing the story published in the latest edition of Sports Illustrated that questioned the quality of care and the motivations behind the removal of longtime team doctor Wayne Sebastianelli earlier this year.
 
O’Brien said he made recommendations in the off-season to athletic director Dave Joyner and university president Rodney Erickson after watching the medical team for his first year.
 
The report also questioned how much power the athletic department has and Joyner’s transition from trustee to university athletic director.
