PHOTOS: Philadelphia Daily News, Inquirer Front Pages On Joe Paterno's Firing

Joe Paterno was fired on Wednesday night, amid the controversy surrounding the program he presided over and Penn State as a whole. After a grand jury indicted former Penn State assistant Jerry Sandusky, things quickly spiraled downward, with outrage growing by the minute as more details were made public. Finally, the Board of Trustees convened, voting to fire Paterno immediately.

SB Nation Philly got a hold of two local newspaper front pages, both of which feature a full-page photo of Paterno and his quote about wishing he had done more.
