STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Penn State's trustees fired coach Joe Paterno as outrage boiled up over the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal.
Now the trustees are the ones being criticized.
The embattled 32-member board meets Friday, its first gathering since November and the frantic first week after child sex abuse charges were filed against Sandusky, Penn State's retired defensive coordinator.
Paterno was dismissed Nov. 9, the same day school President Graham Spanier also departed under pressure. The trustees met two days later, pledging to search for the truth.
Now some alumni and former players are wondering whether the trustees have been up front with them, and are questioning why Paterno was ousted with a full airing of the facts.
