The Penn State board of trustees held an emergency meeting Wednesday night at 10:00pm and unanimously voted to fire football coach Joe Paterno and university president Graham Spanier due to their involvement with the Jerry Sandusky sex scandal. Which is way grosser than that made it sound.
Surprisingly, Mike McQueary, the wide receivers coach who actually witnessed the rape and reported it to Paterno, has not been fired.
Board vice chairman John Surma said…
“Joe Paterno is no longer the football coach, effective immediately. It was necessary for the long-term views of the university which is much larger than athletic programs. … Our job was to make this determination. … I think in the long-term, we’ve done the right thing.”
As a huge college football fan, specifically an LSU fan, I can promise you I’d want my coach fired and arrested if he did what Joe Paterno did. And by that I mean if he were a shitty recruiter and lost to Alabama two years in a row. I seriously hate those people.
