Head Coach Joe Paterno was fired this evening by the school bored of trustees after the sex scandal beginning in 2002 gets even bigger. Penn State acted over rising concern over how the school officials handled the situation of an assistant coach.
Paterno was going to finish out the rest of the season and then resign but won't have the chance.
This is tragic for everyone involved and very sad. Sad for victims of abuse and their families, sad for fans, sad for Penn State and sad for a legendary coach Joe Paterno.
Penn State also Fired the school President Graham Spanier. It's a sad day now, but it really began in 2002!!
