Heading into this weekend’s Outback Bowl against Florida, rumors have popped up on the internet that Joe Paterno might retire after the game due to his failing health.
Not so, says his wife.
“Who started the crazy rumors?” Sue Paterno asked. “He’s fine. No one has to identify who starts it. We don’t even know where it starts. It’s just lies. I mean, he’s (supposedly) in the hospital when he’s sitting at the table for dinner. He wasn’t even near the hospital.”
His daughter also said that the Outback Bowl is not her father’s planned final game.
If the Paterno family is being truthful, the game will mark just one coach’s retirement — the 46-year-old Urban Meyer’s… not the 84-year-old Paterno’s.
