Here are some good quotes from that article (again, by Mark Viera! You’re the man now dog!)
The university announced in April that Paterno would not be given a new contract when his current deal expired after this season. Paterno worked without a contract earlier in his 43-year tenure as the Nittany Lions’ head coach.
Later, Paterno says this
“Everybody’s making a big deal that I don’t have a contract,” said Paterno, who reasserted that he planned to return next fall. “I’ve never even asked for one.”
The article ends with this quote from Derrick Williams.
“Everything that I dream and hoped for has come true,” said the senior wide receiver Derrick Williams, who helped re-energize the program when he committed as the nation’s No. 1 recruit. “We’ve accomplished so much.”
