The deal ends a lawsuit against the university by the Paternos’ son Jay Paterno, who is currently a member of the Penn State board.

Jay Paterno had claimed the university-commissioned report into the case had unfairly tarnished him and made him unable to find work as a football coach.

In a phone interview, Jay Paterno called the agreement “a relief” and “a long time coming.”

A sad chapter in college football history is now over.
