Jerry Sandusky Investigation: Lawyer Asked Bob Costas To Speak To Sandusky, Report Says

Former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky held a phone interview with Bob Costas last night, which lead to many wondering why on Earth he would speak publicly while being investigated for multiple charges of molestation. According to Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated, the original interview wasn't even supposed to be with Jerry Sandusky, it was supposed to be with attorney Joe Amendola.

Quick story about the Bob Costas interview w/ Jerry Sandusky. It was initially supposed to be an interview w/ attorney Joe Amendola at NBC studio, Amendola asks Costas if he wants to speak with Sandusky by phone. Costas (no doubt surprised) says yes. Costas then drawing on his prep for Amendola, Costas interviews Sandusky. That it came upon him so quick makes Costas's work even more remarkable.

This makes Costas interview much more impressive, as it sounds like it was completely unprepared and spontaneous. Costas still delivered the tough questions.
