For the first time since the firing of Penn State head football coach Joe Paterno, the Penn State Board of Trustees spoke.
Paterno is still getting paid. Penn State is still honoring his contract. And yes, they plan on sending him off into the sunset just like they would any other employee who retired after years of service to the university.
After one questioner called the treatment of Paterno “unconscionable” on Wednesday, Erickson responded by saying that “We will certainly want to honor Joe as the future unfolds.”
