Joe Paterno the legendary one time former head football coach at Penn State University died this morning at the age of 85. Our prayers and condolences go out to the Paterno Family. Regardless of his errors, he did a lot for a lot of people and that's how he should be remembered.
His family issued the following statement:
"He died as he lived. He fought hard until the end, stayed positive, thought only of others and constantly reminded everyone of how blessed his life had been. His ambitions were far reaching, but he never believed he had to leave this Happy Valley to achieve them. He was a man devoted to his family, his university, his players and his community."
The front page of the website for the Penn State athletic department was updated with simply a picture of Paterno (see Above).
