Joe Paterno’s widow, Sue Paterno, is planning to give her first interview since the Jerry Sandusky scandal and her husband’s death. She is going to appear on Katie Couric’s daytime talk show on Monday.
Joe Paterno was head coach of the Nittany Lions for nearly as long as he has been married: from 1966 to 2011.
He led the team to 409 victories and two national titles. 111 of those victories were voided by the NCAA as a result of the Sandusky child sexual abuse scandal aftermath.
However, many people feel that Paterno’s involvement in the scandal has been blown out of proportion.
Nevertheless, Paterno was fired by the school only days after the scandal was made public back in 2011. He died in January of 2012 from lung cancer.
