Joe Paterno: A personal remembrance

January 22, 2012

Joe Paterno, who died on Sunday at the age of 85, was the greatest coach I’ve ever been around. He was a really good human being too, a man who loved his wife, his kids, his 17 grandchildren, more than anything in the world, including his job as head football coach at Penn State.
The first time I ever met Joe, back in my reporting days at The Daily Collegian (Penn State’s student newspaper), he called me into his office after we had published an article he found somewhat damaging to the school’s reputation.
