Penn State fires Paterno

Penn State trustees fired football coach Joe Paterno and university president Graham Spanier amid the growing furor over how the school handled sex abuse allegations against an assistant coach.
The massive shakeup Wednesday night came hours after Paterno
announced that he planned to retire at the end of his 46th season.
But the outcry following the arrest of former assistant coach
Jerry Sandusky on molestation charges proved too much for the board
to ignore.
Speaking at his house to students, Paterno said, "Right now,
I'm not the football coach, and that's something I have to get used
to."
