Coach’s Corner 4

The Passing of Joe Paterno

I debated how to write this article all day. Do I talk about Joe Paterno’s accomplishments as a coach or his lack of acting in biggest “game” of his life? Paterno won more games in college football history than any coach and recently passed away at age 85. But when presented with news that long time Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was sexually molesting young boys, Paterno failed to make a goal line stand that was needed.

America is a society that is quick to forgive. But should we forgive Paterno? Paterno, by all accounts, reported the information to administration. When nothing happened, Paterno moved forward. Did he have trouble sleeping? Did he think that the information was not accurate? Did he directly confront Sandusky?
