Penn State Reportedly Requests Mike McQueary Stay Off Sidelines Saturday

Out of concern for his safety, the Board of Trustees at Penn State University has asked new Nittany Lions football coach Tom Bradley to keep wide receivers coach Mike McQueary away from the sidelines for Saturday's game against the Nebraska Cournhuskers, report Andrew McGill and Sam Kennedy of the Allentown Morning Call, citing a trustee who requested anonymity. The Board does not plan to fine or discipline McQueary.

The former Penn State quarterback is the eyewitness to former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky allegedly sexually assaulting a child in a Penn State shower facility in 2002, grand jury testimony revealed. McQueary, then a graduate assistant, reported what he saw to coach Joe Paterno. A grand jury indicted Sandusky on 40 counts of sexual assault Friday, and as more details about the alleged assaults emerged, calls for the resignation of some Penn State officials grew louder. Wednesday night, the university accepted president Graham Spanier's resignation and dismissed Paterno, who began his coaching career there as an assistant in 1950 and took over as head coach in 1966.
