Default Joe Paterno Reportedly Near Death

BlueWhiteIllustrated, the Rivals.com website dedicated to cover Penn State sports, reports that Paterno is in bad shape and extended family has been called to State College due to his declining health. OnwardState.com tweeted earlier in the evening Paterno was taken off a respirator this morning.

According to a tweet from The Citizen’s Voice of Wilkes-Barre, Pa., Paterno is “gravely ill” and “near death“ also confirming BWI‘s report that family and close friends have been summoned to the hospital to say their final goodbyes. A subsequent report on the website, citing a staff member at the hospital in which the coach is being treated, states that Paterno’s wife Sue called in family and friends after her husband said he wanted to say a final goodbye.

Just one more horrible chapter of a horrible story

CBS Sports reported he had passed

But then pulled back on that claim

Sad to pass along this update

Joe Paterno, the man who for decades was synonymous with Penn State football and was known by the college football world as just "JoePa", has died

CBS is now backing off that claim
