Former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky released a written statement Sunday upon the death of Joe Paterno, the former head coach.

Sandusky, who has said he is innocent of the child-sexual-abuse charges filed against him, said this in the prepared remarks:

  • This is a sad day! Our family, Dottie and I would like to convey our deepest sympathy to Sue and her family. Nobody did more for the academic reputation of Penn State than Joe Paterno. He maintained a high standard in a very difficult profession. Joe preached toughness, hard work and clean competition. Most importantly, he had the courage to practice what he preached. Nobody will be able to take away the memories we all shared of a great man, his family, and all the wonderful people who were a part of his life.

The statement was sent to reporters via e-mail by local attorney Joseph Amendola, who has taken a lead in defending Sandusky against the criminal charges.
