By GENARO C. ARMAS
STATE COLLEGE, PA (AP) — Penn State administrators have canceled Joe Paterno’s weekly news conference in which he was expected to field questions about a sex abuse scandal involving a former assistant coach.
Paterno’s son Scott tells The Associated Press on Tuesday that the decision was made by President Graham Spanier’s office.
Scott Paterno says his father was disappointed and was prepared to take questions about the scandal as well as the upcoming game against Nebraska.
