NCAA president Mark Emmert has decided to punish Penn State with severe penalties likely to include a significant loss of scholarships and loss of multiple bowls, according to reports.

But Penn State will not receive the so-called "death penalty" that would have suspended the program for at least one year. The penalties, however, are considered to be so harsh that the death penalty may have been preferable, according to reports.

The NCAA will announce "corrective and punitive measures" for Penn State on Monday morning, it said in a statement Sunday. Emmert will reveal the sanctions at 9 a.m. ET in Indianapolis at the organization's headquarters along with Ed Ray, the chairman of the NCAA's executive committee.

The NCAA's announcement will follow a day after Penn State removed Joe Paterno's statue outside Beaver Stadium.
