Joyner to remain as PSU athletic director

STATE COLLEGE — Penn State has removed the “acting” designation from the title of Athletic Director Dave Joyner.

The school on Monday also formally announced that Joyner would stay on until the end of President Rodney Erickson’s term in 2014.

“I have confidence in Dr. Joyner and want him to continue as part of my leadership team while I am president,” said Erickson.

Both Erickson and Joyner assumed their posts as part of the fallout in the opening weeks of the child molestation scandal involving former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky in November 2011.

Joyner had the title of acting athletic director until Monday. A school spokeswoman said the statement served to announce the title change.

Erickson in September had already said that Joyner would remain on the job until the end of the president’s tenure.

Penn State said a national search for a new athletic director would take place at that time.
