Penn State's acting athletic director will stay on the job as long Rodney Erickson remains the school's president.

Erickson said in response to a question Wednesday at a Penn State student forum that Dave Joyner was doing an excellent job at athletics.

Erickson has said he plans to step down when his contract expires in June 2014. The search for his replacement will begin in November.

It was appropriate, Erickson said, for his successor to decide whether to go in another direction with athletics.

Joyner replaced Tim Curley last November after Curley was charged with perjury and failure to report a crime in connection with a sexual abuse allegation against retired defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.

Curley, who faces trial in January, has denied the charges. He is on leave.
