One of Joe Paterno’s former longtime Penn State coaching assistants, Jerry Sandusky, has been charged with sexually abusing eight boys over a 15-year span and two top university officials have been charged with perjury and failing to report to authorities what they knew of the allegations.
Paterno’s actions with regard to the allegations have come under criticism, as reported by the New York Times.
Yesterday, Paterno announced he will retire at the end of this season.
Last night it was announced that Paterno has been fired.
