Mike McQueary Interview Scheduled To Air Tuesday Night

Penn St. Nittany Lions wide receivers coach Mike McQueary has played a complicated role in the Jerry Sandusky tragedy. He's the former graduate assistant who alerted Joe Paterno to Sandusky's alleged sexual abuse, but he also appeared in the grand jury report as something of a timid bystander. The barely informed layperson, thousands of college football fans, and Pennsylvania's governor alike have formed an opinion of McQueary as a hesitant careerist who neglected to stop an old man from assaulting a young boy.

McQueary has insisted to friends he did stop the attack, though, which makes you wonder just how awkward it must've been for McQueary and Sandusky to occupy the same building on campus for much of the subsequent decade. He's been described by family as desperate to clear his name and tell his side of the story, and it looks like that's about to happen. 

The CBS Evening News begins at 6:30 p.m. ET in most markets, 7 in others. Armen Keteyian handled interview duties.
