Penn State Press Conference: Tom Bradley Declines To Answer Some Questions About Joe Paterno

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

New Penn State head coach Tom Bradley said he would speak to the families of current players Thursday night at 7:30, and would also speak to recruits Thursday night at 8:00.

Bradley said he has received plenty of support from former Penn State players. “I don’t know if you know about Penn State players, but it’s a tight-knit group, a family group.”

He declined to answer specific questions about Joe Paterno, saying that he would get too emotional. “Coach Paterno has meant more to me than anybody except my father,” Bradley said.

Jay Paterno will coach for Penn State on Saturday against Nebraska, Bradley said. He also said that Penn State’s seniors would, in fact, play on Saturday.

Bradley said it had not yet been decided whether Mike McQueary would be on the field or in the press box.
