Penn St. Nittany Lions coach Joe Paterno will not coach another game, according to Jim Gardner of ABC's affiliate on the scene of Wednesday night's board of trustees meeting. Tom Bradley will take over as Penn State's interim coach, according to Gardner.
Bradley is Penn State's defensive coordinator. He grew up in Pennsylvania and played defensive back for Paterno in the mid-'70s, and has been considered a potential successor along the way. He took over for Jerry Sandusky in 1999.
The Nittany Lions have three regular season games left, starting this Saturday at home against Nebraska. Paterno had planned to finish out the season, but forced the board of trustees to make the final decision on his future.
