A man who served as Special Counsel to President Bill Clinton has been hired to advise Penn State's new president.

Lanny Davis, formerly a prominent Washington attorney who now heads a law and crisis management firm, has been engaged to provide legal advice and counsel to Penn State President Rodney Erickson, university spokeswoman Lisa Powers said Friday.

Erickson was appointed last month by the university's board of trustees to replace Graham Spanier, who resigned in the wake of an ongoing child sex abuse scandal involving former football defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.

Sandusky, 67, was charged with more than 50 counts of child sex abuse involving 10 boys.

Davis has also served on an oversight board for President George W. Bush.
