Joe Paterno Hires Criminal Defense Lawyer J. Sedgwick Sollers


Paterno, 84, was the winningest coach in Division 1 football history, and had served a record 46 years as head coach of the Nittany Lions. In the wake of the scandal, he offered to retire at the end of the season, but the board of trustees decided that was not enough and fired him by phone on Wednesday.

The Penn State campus has been rattled by the scandal, breaking into riots Wednesday night in response to Paterno's firing and canceling a pep rally today in favor of a candlelight vigil for the victims of Sandusky's abuse.
