Penn State Names David M. Joyner Acting Athletic Director

Penn State has named David M. Joyner, a member of the board of trustees for over 10 years, as their acting athletic director, effective immediately according to reports.

Joyner is a Penn State alumnus and will suspend his membership on the board of trustees while he takes on this new role. Former athletic director Tim Curley stepped down from this position after being charged with perjury and failing to report a child rape to police back in 2002.

Penn State’s new interim athletic director is a former wrestler and football player for the Nittany Lions, and he received both his bachelor’s and medical degrees from PSU. He is now a business consultant and orthopedic physician, and Penn State released a statement on the move:

“Dave Joyner has served the board with integrity, and he is internationally known for his work with the U.S. Olympic Committee. I am confident that he will bring that same integrity to his new role,” Penn State president Rodney Erickson said.
