Joe Paterno the iconic former head coach of Penn State was once a revered figure on the campus. Today the statue of him was removed in light of his inaction in the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Tomorrow the NCAA will issue sanctions that will virtually kill the football program. His family is upset about the removal, but that is expected. What is not expected is for a head coach to know that one of his staff members is engaging in criminal behavior with children. We will never know everything that Paterno knew, but we know he knew something and as a leader his priority should have been protecting children not protecting a sports program.
