Rodney Allen Erickson (born 1946) is the 17th and current president of Pennsylvania State University. Formerly executive vice president and provost (chief academic officer), he was named interim president of Penn State on November 9, 2011, after previous president Graham Spanier was forced to resign in the wake of the Penn State sex abuse scandal.

It was the President Rodney Erickson that made the deal.
WCHE NEWS - Governor Tom Corbett announced this morning that he is suing the NCAA, calling its sanctions against Penn State University arbitrary and illegal, saying they would result in significant economic damage to the university, the commonwealth and its citizens. The governor asked the court to throw out all of the sanctions, including the $60 million fine, and asked that the court declare the consent agreement illegal. The lawsuit, which is expected to be filed today in U.S. District Court in Harrisburg, also accuses the NCAA of forcing Penn State President Rodney Erickson into silent compliance with its sanctions by threatening to impose even more debilitating sanctions to the football program. The sanctions were issued after former Penn State football Coach Jerry Sandusky was arrested for molestling multiple children. Sandusky is now serving a prison sentence for the crimes.
Corbett says he told BOT chair and Rodney Erickson over the weekend about suit, but they were not invited to be a part of it.
Governor Corbett advised Karen Peetz and Rodney Erickson of this lawsuit this weekend.

Over a year later and there is still not a single shred of evidence linking Joe Paterno to any wrong doing in the Jerry Sandusky case. On the day Paterno said he would resign he could barely get out of his house with media swarming his lawn, meanwhile Jerry Sandusky was working out at a public gym surrounded by nobody. Do not tell me this wasn't a public lynching led by a media witch-hunt. In a matter of hours lies and false stories circulated around the world, largely fueled by AG Linda Kelly's awful presentment and the media members at ESPN, CNN and other national outlets. The media knew Joe wouldn't punch back because that's Joe taking the high road and potentially because he knew they were all fruitless lies. But I stood outside his house the night he was fired and we will fight for Joe Paterno. President Rodney Erickson shrunk in front of the NCAA and accepted incomprehensible sanctions because he says its time to move forward. Well we aren't going anywhere until we give Joe Paterno his own fair sho ...

Sorry if you heard this already but in the Aug. 6 issue of SI there's a letter from Rodney Erickson in response to the "We were PSU" cover
A Penn State board of trustee member filed an appeal Monday afternoon with the NCAA over sanctions levied against the university after the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse scandal. Three other trustees joined the appeal, which states that the consent decree university President Rodney Erickson signed with the NCAA agreeing to the sanctions is "null and void" because Erickson "lacked the legal authority" to enter into such an agreement without the board's approval. Trustees and a person with first-hand knowledge of the discussions said the move is a precursor to a federal lawsuit asking a judge to invalidate the sanctions, because trustees expect the NCAA to reject the appeal.
