Penn State's Board of Trustees held a special meeting by conference call on Sunday to discuss the consent decree imposed by the NCAA and accepted by the University in July.
More than two dozen members of the 32-member board voiced support for President Rodney Erickson's decision and a desire to move forward, although many criticized the sanctions imposed by the NCAA over how the university handled the Jerry Sandusky sex scandal.
Board chairwoman Karen Peetz told fellow trustees during Sunday evening's conference call that the panel could not vote because 10 days' notice of the meeting was required.
The NCAA on July 23 barred the school from postseason play for four years, fined it $60 million, stripped it of future scholarships and invalidated 112 of the football team's wins.
