Settlement To Give Wins Back To Paterno And Penn State

An agreement between the NCAA and Penn State will restore to the school's football program a total of 112 previously vacated wins.  The wins include 111 under coach Joe Paterno, extending from 1998 to 2011, and their last win of 2011, played under defensive coach Tom Bradley, who filled in after Paterno was fired.  The consent decree will replace a settlement made in 2012, the legality of which was to be decided by an upcoming trial.  In return, Penn State will pay $60 million to the NCAA, which must use the money within Pennsylvania to fight against child abuse and its effects.
