Report: Joe Paterno out as Penn State coach

Posted By on Tue, Nov 8, 2011 at 12:40 PM

The New York Times is reporting that Joe Paterno will soon be exiting the scene as the school's football coach. Quoting anonyous sources, the Times said, "Discussions about how to manage his departure have begun."

The school canceled a Paterno news conference today.

The sex scandal will do it. And should. But the school had been searching for ways to move the 84-year-old along. This wouldn't have been the first choice, I'm sure.
