The National Collegiate Athletic Association handed down what it billed as “unprecedented” sanctions to Penn State on Monday after a pedophilia scandal rocked the college.

Jerry Sandusky, a longtime assistant coach with the college, was convicted last month on 45 of 48 counts of sexual abuse of young boys who attended summer camps at the college. A recent FBI report found that officials at Penn State actively worked to prevent the accusations of sexual abuse from becoming public.
