STATE COLLEGE Pa. — Penn State has named an eastern Pennsylvania college administrator to be its first athletics integrity officer.
Julie Del Giorno has been chief of staff at Moravian College and its theological seminary. School officials say she’ll begin her new job at Penn State on April 1.
The post was created to comply with NCAA sanctions last summer over the child sex abuse scandal involving former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.
Del Giorno will oversee compliance involving integrity, civility, ethics and institutional control at Penn State.
She has held coaching positions at the University of Central Arkansas and positions at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Del Giorno has also served as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Army.
Sandusky was convicted in June of 45 criminal counts.
