Dr. Jack Raykovitz resigned today after 28 years as CEO of The Second Mile, ESPN is reporting amid allegations that the charity's founder, former Penn State defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky, abused young boys that The Second Mile charity attempted to help. Raykovitz is the latest head to fly in the fallout from the arrest of Sandusky, who is facing 40 counts  stemming from years of abuse of young boys that allegedly took place during and after his tenure as Penn State's defensive coordinator. 

Raykovitz said in a statement that he hoped that his resignation would bring about a "restoration of faith in the community of volunteers and staff" at The Second Mile." 

Many of Sandusky's alleged victims were children he met through his work with The Second Mile. 

Last week legendary football coach Joe Paterno was forced out and today his name was removed from the Big Ten championship trophy.
