NEW YORK (AP) - Penn State's trustees are promoting the reforms they've adopted as a result of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal, hoping they might someday help persuade the NCAA to reconsider the penalties before they are due to expire.

Chairman Keith Masser and longtime board member Joel Myers said during an hourlong interview Wednesday with The Associated Press that it's something they want to do as soon as possible, but they aren't providing a time frame.

Masser says he's concerned about some trustees signing on to a lawsuit against NCAA, adding the board is looking into the legal issues that could raise.

It has been nearly a year since Penn State agreed to a $60 million fine, a four-year ban on post-season play, a loss of scholarship and other penalties.
