SuePa Calls JoePa Retirement Rumors “Lies”

In an exclusive interview with Ron Musselman of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and Mark Brennan of Fight on State, Sue Paterno spoke out against the rumors that Joe Paterno would be retiring after the Outback Bowl due to health concerns.

SuePa, joined by daughter Mary Kay Hort and daughter-in-law Kelley Paterno (wife of Jay Paterno), told the beat writers that she and Joe had not discussed the possibility that the Outback Bowl would be the legendary head coach’s final game for Penn State.

According to his wife, JoePa’s health is fine. She also told the writers that Joe has not had any conversations yet with Penn State administration about his future with the university. Paterno’s current contract, which was extended in 2008, lasts through the 2011 season. Paterno has publicly said that he will be coming back to coach next year.

I don’t want to steal their scoop, so head on over to either the Post-Gazette or Fight on State for the full story.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
