PSU trustee says he plans NCAA appeal

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - A Penn State trustee said he plans to file an appeal with the NCAA over the strict sanctions imposed on the university for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
 
    
Trustee Ryan McCombie in a letter to fellow trustees sent Monday wrote he's taking action in the interest of due process and sought an NCAA hearing.
 
    
A copy of the letter was obtained by The Associated Press. McCombie verified the letter but declined comment otherwise.
 
    
Among the penalties was a four-year postseason ban. College sports' governing body acted after Penn State handed over results of its internal investigation led by former FBI director Louis Freeh.
 
    
The university accepted the sanctions.
 
    
The NCAA last week said the penalties weren't subject to appeal after Joe Paterno's family said they planned to file one.
