Paterno Statue Removed From Outside Stadium

The statue of longtime Penn State University football coach Joe Paterno was removed Sunday morning from its location outside Beaver Stadium, where the storied program plays its home games.  Rodney Erickson, president of the university, announced that the statue will be relocated to a “secure location.”

The decision to remove the statue comes on the heels of a scathing report by former FBI director Louis J. Freeh that found that Paterno had concealed allegations of sex abuse by former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.
