All these nasty folks are going down for their knowledge of Jerry Sandusky and child molesting ways:
Penn State administrators are discussing how to manage Joe Paterno’s departure as the football coach, the New York Times reported Tuesday, citing two unnamed people briefed on talks among the school’s top officials. Paterno could be done as the football coach perhaps within days or weeks, the newspaper reported. He certainly will not return as coach next year, the newspaper reported.
Earlier Tuesday, Penn State’s president abruptly canceled Paterno’s weekly news conference amid increasing calls for both men to resign in the wake of a former assistant coach’s sex-abuse scandal and as another potential victim came forward. 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.
“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.
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.
Joe Paterno is like 85-Years-Old anyway…time for him to retire.
