Report: Penn State President Will Resign or be Fired

A newspaper is reporting that Penn State President Graham Spanier's term in office is nearly at an end.

The Express-Times of Easton reported Wednesday (http://bit.ly/snIMNH ) that a person close to the university board of trustees said Spanier will either resign or be voted out by trustees by the end of the day.

The newspaper didn't identify the person, who it said requested anonymity.

Citing the unidentified person, it reported that an interim president, most likely Rodney Erickson, the university's executive vice president and provost, would be appointed and a search for a permanent replacement would begin.
