Sex Scandal At Penn State Called A ‘Staggering Blow’ [VIDEO]
More and more information continues to surface about the alleged sexual abuse of boys by a former Penn State assistant football coach.
And there are calls for the resignation of college football legend Joe Paterno and the University President.
A high-ranking official at Penn State reportedly says support for Paterno is eroding among the Board of Trustees. Many close to the scandal involving the alleged sexual abuse of 8 boys over a 15 year period by former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky say Penn State President Grahm Spanier may also be on the way out. Townsquare Sports Director Kevin Williams' family has close ties to Penn State.
He says there certainly will be prolonged legal proceedings against Sandusky. Williams says, "we know that is going to take a long time. Williams says the school cannot allow this to damage its reputation with the same people still in their positions". Kevin agrees this is an, "earthquake" of a scandal for Penn State. Williams calls the story a 'staggering blow' to fans of Paterno and Penn State itself.

Coach Paterno was scheduled to hold his routine weekly news conference shortly after noon on Tuesday. But it was cancelled at the last minute by University officials with no explanation. Meanwhile, Scott Paterno is telling reporters that his father has had no talks with Penn State officials or trustees about stepping down.
