Default Penn State planning coach Paterno's exit

Report: Penn State planning coach Paterno's exit

  • NFL.com Wire Reports
  • Published: Nov. 8, 2011 at 12:40 p.m.


Joe Paterno's tenure as head coach of the Nittany Lions is likely to end within days or weeks, two sources told the New York Times on Tuesday.

Penn State administrators canceled Paterno's weekly news conference Tuesday afternoon, in which he was expected to field questions about a sex-abuse scandal involving former defensive coach Jerry Sandusky.

"Due to the ongoing legal circumstances centered around the recent allegations and charges, we have determined that today's press conference cannot be held and will not be rescheduled," assistant Athletic Director Jeff Nelson said in a statement.

Paterno's son Scott told The Associated Press that the decision was made by President Graham Spanier's office.

Scott said that his father was disappointed and was prepared to take questions about the scandal as well as the upcoming game against Nebraska.

The news conference was to be the first chance for reporters to ask Paterno about what he knew about Jerry Sandusky, his former defensive coordinator and one-time heir apparent, who was indicted on charges of sexually abusing eight boys over 15 years.

Authorities have said that Paterno, who testified in the grand jury proceedings that led to the charges, is not a target of the investigation. But the state police commissioner has chastised him and other school officials for not doing enough to try to stop the suspected abuse.

A person familiar with Sandusky's relationship with Penn State told The Associated Press that the former coach long maintained an office in the East Area Locker building which is across the street from the Penn State football team's building, and was on campus as recently as week ago working out.

The university's online director listed Sandusky, whom PSU officials said banned from campus over the weekend, as an assistant professor emeritus of physical education in the Lasch building.

The grand jury investigating Sandusky found that he was given the office, a parking pass and other amenities as part of his 1999 retirement package.

Sad news for sure! I WAS a Penn State fan since I was a kid! I feel bad for Joe but am having a tough time holding on to any respect for him! Allowing that dirtbag sandusky to step foot on campus after knowing what happened is terrible! You dont F**K with kids! Guess im searching for a new college team!

I can't believe that this is what got him out of there. I thought for the last several years they'd have to carry him out in a body bag for him to stop being the coach, not something like this. Damn disgusting shame what went down.

All because one sick perverted piece of $hit! Jo-Pa really should have stepped up 9 years ago and had that bastard locked up! That would have put his legacy even higher IMO,stepping up against a coleague and doing whats morally rite! Not let a predator roam free to cause more pain to the innocent little victom,the rite thing was done!!! Now after this season they need to completely clean house,EVERYONE!!! Hire a Urban Meyer type and allow him to bring in his own staff! Thats the ONLY way to salvage this program and have a chance at recruiting!!!
