NEW YORK (AP) — Penn State’s trustees are on a mission to promote the reforms they have enacted as a result of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal, hoping their record might persuade the NCAA to reconsider its crippling penalties against the university before they are due to expire in 2018.

In an hour-long interview in New York with The Associated Press, board Chairman Keith Masser and longtime board member Joel Myers didn’t offer a time frame for approaching the NCAA, but they noted the university’s consent agreement with the NCAA allows it to be reopened if both sides agree.
