Penn State athletic director Joyner resigns

Posted: Updated:
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Penn State athletic director David Joyner will resign Aug. 1.

Joyner was appointed acting athletic director in November 2011 after Tim Curley was placed on administrative leave. He steered the department through the aftermath of the Jerry Sandusky scandal and the death of former football coach Joe Paterno.

Penn State will form a search committee and work with a consulting firm in looking for its next athletic director. David Gray, senior vice president for finance and business at Penn State, has agreed to chair the search committee.

Joyner hired Bill O'Brien to replace Paterno following sanctions levied against the university because of the scandal. O'Brien coached the Nittany Lions for two years before leaving for the NFL.

Joyner hired former Vanderbilt coach James Franklin as O'Brien's successor.
