Ugh. Tragic all around. But there is no room for error when it comes to child abuse or sexual molestation. So, Joe had to go.

Here’s a look at Paterno’s career coaching record.  He spent 46 years as head coach of the Penn State Nittany Lions.

Paterno is the winningest coach in college football history (major schools) and took home two National Titles: 1982, 1986.
