Penn State Coach Is Fired

Celebrated Penn State University head football coach Joe Paterno was dismissed by the school's board of trustees in light of shocking child molestation charges against one of his former assistant coaches, Jerry Sandusky. Paterno said he wished he had done more after being told of the alleged abuse, including a charge that Sandusky had sex in a football locker room shower with an underage boy in 2002. Paterno had been at the school for 61 years, serving as head coach since 1966.
