Joe Paterno Back to the Hospital

 

Joe Paterno, the legendary former Penn State football coach, has suffered from fractured pelvis after a fall at his home and was rushed to a hospital to receive treatment. Paterno would not need to undergo surgery but will be treated for cancer and is expected to be fully recovered within days, hospital sources said.

Joe Paterno Hospitalized

The 84-year-old Paterno has a treatable form of lung cancer and doctors expressed optimism he can be fully recovered from the illness. During preseason practice in August, Paterno hurt his pelvis after a blindsiding incident on the field.

The Brooklyn, New York-born Paterno headed the football team of Penn State in 1966 and remained at the helm until last month when he was fired amidst a child abuse scandal involving a former defensive coordinator of the Nittany Lions, Jerry Sandusky. Paterno managed to lead his team to a record 409 NCAA Division I victories during his career.

Sandusky is charged with abusing young men while being part of the team’s management for years. Paterno is not charged but was fired along with Penn State President Graham Spanier, who tried to cover the scandal when another member of the management witnessed Sandusky and a young man in the team’s bathroom and informed Spanier and one of his deputies in charge of the university police force.
