Haden on Penn State

| No Comments

USC athletic director Pat Haden reacted to the sanctions handed down to the Penn State football program by the NCAA today.

"First and foremost, with today's news about the Penn State football sanctions and their impact, let's not forget about the victims.  The circumstance that led to these sanctions was very unfortunate and tragic.

"We can't speak to how these sanctions are going to impact the Penn State program.  At USC, we found that the most difficult part of our NCAA sanctions has been the reduction of scholarships. 

"We are fortunate to have an outstanding group of coaches and a plan in place to deal with our sanctions.  You have to be very judicious in recruiting, you have to be lucky with injuries and you have to guard your roster from players being recruited by other schools.  It is an inexact science and you have to do the best you can.  Our coaches have handled these challenges extremely well."
