Joe Paterno’s family released its response to Penn State’s report on the Jerry Sandusky scandal Sunday, attacking Louis Freeh’s conclusion that the coach hid sex abuse allegations against his longtime assistant.
Some of the Paterno Report findings are shocking, and may radically alter the way in which many have viewed the case, and the legacy of a legendary coach:
Breaking more than a year of silence, Sue Paterno is defending her late husband as a “moral, disciplined” man who never twisted the truth to avoid bad publicity.
For the first time since the Jerry Sandusky scandal broke, Joe Paterno’s widow will speak out.
The understanding of the need for culture change at Penn State lasted all of two weeks, if it ever existed at all beyond worthless words from impotent administrators.
In the wake of the NCAA sanctions levied against Penn State, Nittany Lion supporters held an unofficial rally for the current players this morning outside of the Lasch Football Building.
Paterno’s family said Tuesday through a spokesman that Paterno’s widow, Sue, would receive an initial payment of $10.1 million by the end of May, with the rest to be paid out over the next two years.
