Holy shit. The winningest coach in college football died at 85 from complications with cancer.
What a sad, tragic footnote to the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Paterno didn’t handle it well, but hopefully that won’t sully his otherwise sterling reputation as both a coach and leader of young men. The Penn State program wasn’t always the best off the field, but they were certainly better than most. Much of that was because of Joe Paterno.
