How much did Penn State officials know about the Sandusky scandal? Report on internal dealings due today

(CNN) - The long-awaited findings of an internal review into how Penn State University handled allegations of child sex abuse by a former assistant football coach are scheduled to be released Thursday morning.

Louis Freeh, the former FBI director and federal judge, spearheaded the university-funded probe into a scandal that has shaken Pennsylvania residents and gripped the nation, leading to the dismissal of legendary head coach Joe Paterno, as well as the ouster of the university's longtime president Graham Spanier and athletic director Tim Curley.

Speculation over the report's contents and its possible recommendations have raised questions about what Penn State officials and others may have known, if anything, about the behavior of Jerry Sandusky, who was convicted in June of sexually abusing young boys over a 15-year period.

This morning on "Early Start," Susan Candiotti previews the Freeh report.
