Mike McQueary Will Not Coach This Weekend After Multiple Threats

Penn State assistant Mike McQueary will not coach this weekend after receiving multiple threats ahead of the Nittany Lions matchup with Nebraska. McQueary will not be at Saturdays game at all, staying away from the stadium completely instead of coaching from the press box as some had hypothesized he would.

The statement from Penn State is below.

Due to multiple threats made against Assistant Coach Mike McQueary, the University has decided it would be in the best interest of all for Assistant Coach McQueary not to be in attendance at Saturday's Nebraska game.

McQueary has come under fire for failing to call police after allegedly witnessing Jerry Sandusky rape a young child in the shower in the Penn State locker room in 2002. McQueary was a graduate assistant at the time and told head coach Joe Paterno of the incident the next day, after consulting with his father.

It remains unclear what McQueary's role with the team will be going forward.
