Penn State won't renew contract of Tim Curley
HARRISBURG, Pa. - October 16, 2012 (WPVI) -- Penn State will not renew the contract of athletic director Tim Curley, who has been on leave since being charged last year with perjury and failing to report a child sex abuse allegation against former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.
University spokesman Dave La Torre said in a statement the school notified Curley his contract would not be renewed when it expires in June. La Torre declined further comment Tuesday, citing a personnel issue.
Curley and retired vice president Gary Schultz are scheduled to stand trial in January in Harrisburg on the perjury and failure to report charges. Both men have denied the allegations against them.
Curley was charged last November. The school has paid about $2 million so far for the legal defense of Curley, Schultz and former president Graham Spanier.
