Mrs. Paterno Opens Up

Penn State Live ran a feature yesterday that we couldn’t pass up. In a feature titled ‘Heard on Campus: Sue Paterno,’ an interesting fact was shared with a class by the football coach’s wife:

“The reason we have a listed phone number is because Joe doesn’t answer it. There have been problems with that, but his main reason for that is the parents of players. If something happens, he wants them to be able to get in contact with someone.”

— Sue Paterno, addressing students Tuesday (Dec. 2) in COMM 497G: Joe Paterno, Communications and The Media

I didn’t know that, nor did I know that there is a course dedicated to Joe Paterno, taught by Michael Poorman.

I hope that this doesn’t open up the Paternos to ‘Is your wide reciever running?’ prank calls!
