This is likely all a semantics argument, but Penn State wide receivers coach Mike McQueary's father says his son is not in State College, but also isn't in protective custody. Earlier, McQueary reportedly told the Nittany Lions' wide receivers he was no longer their coach and that he was in protective custody away from State College. McQueary has come under fire for not calling police after allegedly witnessing former Penn State assistant Jerry Sandusky abusing a child in the locker room in 2002.
While his father did say McQueary is not being guarded, he did have time for a joke.
"Actually I should tell you yes, he's surrounded by 80 guards. I should tell you they're all armed with bazookas," John McQueary told ESPN.com. "But to the best of my knowledge that's not true."
While McQueary isn't being guarded, he is away from his home for his own protection, it would seem. In other words, it sounds as if something was crossed up in the original message to the players -- or misinterpreted -- but McQueary is still in seclusion, though not in custody anywhere.
