Paterno Family: Late Coach Didn’t Cover Up at Penn State

Joe Paterno’s family says the late Penn State football coach didn’t cover up for convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky, and didn’t act to prevent a proper investigation of the retired defensive coordinator.

Paterno’s family also called Sandusky a “master deceiver” in the statement released Tuesday after former FBI director Louis Freeh announced he would release the findings of his investigation into the scandal on Thursday.

Freeh was hired to investigate by the Penn State trustees, who ousted Paterno days after Sandusky was arrested in November.

Paterno’s family said the Freeh team declined its offer to respond to recent news leaks after the family asked to review the findings. They said Paterno never got a chance to present his case before he died of lung cancer in January.
