Penn State Recovery Gets Boost From Freech's Hiring
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Experts say Penn State's reputation can be repaired even though it was shattered in the wake of a sex abuse scandal involving a former assistant football coach.

Perhaps the biggest step in that direction is what the university has done: hire someone with scant ties to the school's day-to-day operations to help investigate what administrators knew about Jerry Sandusky and when.

The school on Monday named FBI Director Louis Freeh to oversee that internal investigation.

Terry Hartle is senior vice president at the American Council on Education. He says that if the school wants to restore the faith of students, staff and alumni, it needs ''a no-holds-barred assessment of what happened and what went wrong.''
