STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Penn State says assistant coach Mike
McQueary won't coach the Nittany Lions on Saturday because
"multiple threats" have been made against him.
The university released a statement Thursday night saying it
would be "in the best interest of all" if the receivers coach
didn't attend the game against Nebraska at Beaver Stadium.
The football program is in turmoil following the firing of
longtime coach Joe Paterno, brought down in a scandal involving
child sex-abuse allegations against former defensive coordinator
McQueary testified to a grand jury that he encountered Sandusky
in the Penn State showers with a 10-year-old boy in 2002. He later
told Paterno of the incident.
Sandusky was arrested and charged last Saturday. His lawyer
maintains his client is innocent.
