Tom Bradley To Hold First Press Conference As Penn State Head Coach On Thursday

Longtime defensive coordinator Tom Bradley has a tough task ahead of him as he takes over as head coach of the Penn State Nittany Lions on an interim basis, effectively immediately. Bradley was thrust into the role on Wednesday night after the Penn State Board of Trustees voted to fire Joe Paterno in the wake of child sex abuse allegations brought against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.

On Thursday, Bradley will take the first step as head coach of the Nittany Lions, meeting with the media before continuing with preparations for this weekend's game.

New Penn State head coach Tom Bradley will meet media tomorrow morning at 11.

It's unclear what Bradley will be able to discuss, though it seems likely the ongoing investigation will continue to be off-limits. If Wednesday night's Board of Trustees press conference is any indication, Bradley's first meeting with the media as head coach has the potential to quickly become a circus.
