Former FBI director Louis J. Freeh will head up an independent investigation into Penn State's actions in regard to recent child sex abuse allegations implicating a former assistant football coach, according to a story posted on the university's website.

The findings will be made public when the investigation is complete, according to the report.

“I am committed to leading the investigation into this tragic and distressing series of events and making the appropriate recommendations. Our investigation will look carefully at the governance, protocols, decision-making and oversight within the University. We will cooperate fully with the law enforcement authorities, will defer to them, and will not impede their work in any way," Freeh said, according to the story. “I welcome the unequivocal support the special committee and the entire board have offered for full access and cooperation. They have directed me to carry out this investigation with complete independence, and take it wherever it may lead. I will proceed with all deliberate speed, but there are no limits on the duration of the investigation. We will work expeditiously as well as thoroughly.”
