According to the New York Times, Joe Paterno's 46 year tenure at Penn State will be coming to a humiliating and dramatic ending. Pete Thamel and Mark Viera reported..
The board of trustees has yet to determine the precise timing of Paterno’s exit, but it is clear that the man who has more victories than any other coach at college football’s top level and who made Penn State a prestigious national brand will not survive to coach another season.

more to come later.
