Penn State’s president is methodically seeking input from trustees, alumni and other constituencies about the fate of the Joe Paterno statue outside the football stadium.
Penn State still seems to be weaving in the wake of the Freeh report last week.
Veteran Penn State football coach Joe Paterno began talks that resulted in a sweetened retirement contract in the same month that he testified before a grand jury in the Jerry Sandusky sex-abuse case.
“The Joe that I knew, for the four years that I was under his rule and then as I knew him years after, Joe, he did not waver on the character, on the integrity, all those things.”
For Joe Paterno, his legacy will always lay on the same shelf with the horror that Jerry Sandusky wrought upon Happy Valley.
Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky had three of the 51 child sex-abuse charges against him dismissed before attorneys began closing arguments in the high-profile case that led to the firing of longtime head coach Joe Paterno.
There will never be another coaching career like Joe Paterno’s.
Even with his greatness as a football coach, and all the good his life otherwise entailed, it’s impossible to move past the part about Joe Paterno that became one of the epicenters of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.
Joe Paterno, who racked up more wins than anyone else in major college football but was fired from Penn State amid a child sex abuse scandal, has died. He was 85.
The child sex scandal in State College, PA is about as sick as it gets.
