Penn State is making steady progress in implementing the requirements outlined by the NCAA following the sanctions for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal, former U.S. Sen. George Mitchell said Friday.

Mitchell, the independent athletics integrity monitor, also said in a statement Friday that the university is making progress in implementing recommendations from Louis Freeh following the former FBI director's internal investigation into the scandal. The school has said the recommendations were designed to strengthen governance, compliance and reporting.

"University administrators, staff, and trustees continued to demonstrate a good faith effort to fulfill their obligations and to implement improvements to Penn State's functionality and security," Mitchell wrote in the 30-page document. "My team and I have received continued, complete cooperation from the university."
