VIDEO: Franco Harris Reacts to PSU Board: 'You Guys Are a Bunch of Wimps'
Former football player Franco Harris was shocked when the Penn State board fired longtime football coach Joe Paterno in November, he said on campus Friday.
Among his initial reactions, he said, was this: "You guys are a bunch of wimps."
Harris shared his thoughts in a "Real Talk" session at the Nittany Lion Inn and, separately, with reporters.
StateCollege.com Managing Editor William Derrick captured some of Harris' remarks in the videos embedded below.
