Penn State Trustees Don't Want Mike McQueary On Sidelines, According To Report

Penn St. Nittany Lions interim head coach Tom Bradley told reporters Thursday that Mike McQueary, the former GA who reported the 2002 Jerry Sandusky allegation to Joe Paterno, will remain in his capacity as an assistant and will be with the team in some form this Saturday.

The Penn State Board of Trustees have now asked Bradley to keep McQueary off the field during Saturday's nationally-televised game against Nebraska.

The trustee told The Morning Call in an exclusive interview that the board made the request out of concern for McQueary's safety.

According to the Morning Call, the board does not plan to fire McQueary or ask him to step down. This according to a trustee who has asked not to be identified.

Expect Bradley to comply with the BOT and keep McQuery off the field. Likely he'll end up in one of the coaching booths, if he's even in the stadium at all.
