Just when you thought the details of the Jerry Sandusky scandal, and the Penn State cover-up of his alleged child rape couldn’t offend your sensibilities and morals any further, we learned today during the Sandusky trial that other coaches, in addition to Jerry Sandusky used to shower with little boys in Happy Valley.

Yes, this only gets creepier, sicker and weirder. Apparently, it was common practice for grown adult men to be showering with young boys in the PSU college football program.

From the Miami Herald:

Former Penn State assistant coach Dick Anderson, who worked with Sandusky for several years, testified that he and other members of the football staff were present when Sandusky brought young boys into the team’s showers.

He said he never witnessed anything inappropriate.

“If Jerry would bring someone in with The Second Mile, they had been working out, for whatever reason they came in, it was not uncommon … with the other coaches in the shower as well,” Anderson said.

Anderson, who coached at Penn State from 1970 to 1983 and again from 1990 to 2011, adults and children often shower together at gyms. He noted, for example, that it’s not unusual for him to be in the showers with boys at the YMCA.

Another coach Booker Brooks, took the stand and testified that he also showered with boys regularly. Anyone else frightened by this development? Sandusky is facing 51 counts from 10 victims over a 15 year span. This trial is cruising along at a rapid pace and might even conclude a week from today. the defense could rest its case by Wednesday, which would mean closing arguments could come Thursday morning.
