Scott Paterno: NYT Report 'Premature'
Citing unnamed sources, The New York Times reported Tuesday that Joe Paterno's departure as Penn State's head football coach is imminent.
But Scott Paterno, a son of the coach, called that report "premature."
"No discussions about retirement with JVP," Scott Paterno wrote on Twitter at 12:50 p.m.
He also indicated that he's working on another press conference for his father.
Joe Paterno's regular weekly press conference, scheduled for 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, was abruptly canceled. ESPN reported that university President Graham Spanier made the decision to cancel the press conference.
