Since 1950, Joe Paterno has been a fixture at Penn State’s football program and a legend in college football. He sent more than 250 players to the NFL and ran as clean an athletic program as may be reasonably accomplished, but now he has to end his career on a low note.
In case you hadn’t heard, Paterno announced Wednesday that he would step down as Penn State’s coach at the end of this season after the revelation of a sex abuse scandal involving his former assistant coach, Jerry Sandusky. The Associated Press sums it up in the clip below. —KA
