PSU: McQueary Won't Coach Saturday Due To Threats

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Penn State says assistant coach Mike McQueary won't coach the Nittany Lions on Saturday because "multiple threats" have been made against him.

The university released a statement Thursday night saying it would be "in the best interest of all" if the receivers coach didn't attend the game against Nebraska at Beaver Stadium.

The football program is in turmoil following the firing of longtime coach Joe Paterno, brought down in a scandal involving child sex-abuse allegations against former defensive coordinator
Jerry Sandusky.

McQueary testified to a grand jury that he encountered Sandusky in the Penn State showers with a 10-year-old boy in 2002. He later told Paterno of the incident.

Sandusky was arrested and charged last Saturday. His lawyer maintains his client is innocent.
