Coach Bill O'Brien's five-year deal with Penn State allows for the two sides to agree to an extension by 2016, or the year before his contract is up. The contract could then be extended by one to three seasons, according to new details released this week by the university. O'Brien signed the deal Jan. 6, when he was named successor to the late Joe Paterno.

Also, O'Brien added Dwight Galt IV, Sean Hayes and Steven Williams Jr. to the strength and conditioning staff.

The Ohio Supreme Court's Board of Commissioners on Grievances and Discipline recommended a six-month license suspension for attorney Christopher Cicero, whose emails to former coach Jim Tressel sparked a scandal that eventually got Tressel fired. The ruling goes to the Supreme Court, which can accept, reject or change the recommendation.
