As rebutting commentary on the Freeh Report and its recently issued critique, the Paterno Report, continues, another member of the Board of Trustees has joined the conversation on what should follow.
Trustee Ryan McCombie is pressing for a thorough review of the Paterno Report, according to an issued statement late Monday. He said the rebuttal has prompted a pause in the "closing the book and moving on" from the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse case. He further said he does not reflect the views of the entire board.
“We need to ‘take a breath;' read the entire [Paterno family] report and digest it,” McCombie's statement read. “Only then can we begin an open, thoughtful and useful conversation about what happened in Happy Valley and how to prevent it from happening anywhere again.”
This comes after fellow trustee Alvin Clemens expressed similar thoughts Monday, calling for a re-examination of the Freeh Report by the board.
In a statement Sunday, former FBI director Freeh called the investigation commissioned by the Paterno family "self-serving."
University spokesman David La Torre said he does not have a comment on the matter.
