Mike McQueary Tells Penn State Players He's Done Coaching Them

Penn State assistant football coach Mike McQueary, who reported seeing Jerry Sandusky raping a young boy in a PSU football locker room shower while McQueary was a graduate assistant in 2002, officially went on administrative leave on Friday. But there may be more, as McQueary has told PSU players he isn’t going to be their coach anymore.

On Friday afternoon, according to two team sources, new receivers coach Terrell Golden gathered his players in a room at the PSU football complex and allowed them to talk with McQueary on a speaker phone.

During a brief and emotional conversation, McQueary told them, “I wanted to let you guys know I’m not your coach anymore. I’m done.”

McQueary also told his players that he was in “protective custody.” That was meant to be a joke, but the players (perhaps understandably) believed it. We’ll be looking out for further updates about McQueary’s status.
