Penn State is working to restore confidence and contain damage from the wake of the sex abuse scandal centered on former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who has been charged with sexually abusing eight young boys over a period of more than a decade, Reuters reports.

"I am going to find a way to restore confidence and start a healing process with everybody," interim head coach Tom Bradley told the news organization.

The university has also fired football coach Joe Paterno for not acting when he found out nearly a decade ago about Sandusky engaging in inappropriate behavior with a young boy on campus. It has also dismissed other officials for failing to report incidents they had knowledge of. The university is also conducting a thorough investigation of the situation.
