Carr: Not the Joe Paterno I knew
Sat, 21 Jul 2012 23:59:51 GMT —
Former Michigan coach Lloyd Carr says he's not qualified to offer an opinion on whether a statue of Joe Paterno on the Penn State campus should be taken down in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.
Carr made his comments Saturday night during an interview session with reporters before he was enshrined in the College Football Hall of Fame.
Critics have called for the sculpture to be taken down after the Freeh report concluded that
Paterno was aware of the 1998 allegations against Sandusky and that the former Nittany Lions' head coach was involved in the decision to hide a 2001 incident from authorities.
Carr called the report's findings devastating to Penn State's leadership.
