Tom Bradley Press Conference: Mike McQueary To Coach For Penn State Vs. Nebraska

Here are some notes from interim Penn State head coach Tom Bradley's press conference Thursday morning.

“I take this job with very mixed emotions, due to the situation,” Bradley said. He later, however, said, “I have no reservations about taking this job.”

“I grieve for the victims. I grieve for the families … Our thoughts and our prayers are with them,” Bradley said.

Bradley says he called Joe Paterno Wednesday night, but would not say what they talked about.

Bradley noted that Mike McQueary, the witness in the Jerry Sandusky case, would coach for Penn State on Saturday against Nebraska. He also said he is not thinking about dismissing McQueary.

Bradley repeatedly declined to answer any questions about Jerry Sandusky, noting that an investigation against him is ongoing.

He said that, despite the protests Wednesday night in State College, he is not concerned about the safety of his players at the game on Saturday. He does not think the events of the last week will distract them. “It’s a very resilient group,” he said.
