Effective Immediately, Joe Paterno's Historical Tenure as Penn State's Football Coach Ends

"With the benefit of of hindsight, I wish I had done more," JoePa said.

I'm sure that statement was regarding the recent scandal. But as far as his coaching career is concerned, I cannot imagine how much more he could done.

Since taking over as the Nittany Lions' head coach in 1966, he won more games (409) than anyone in Division I college football history and won two national championships.

It is just a shame that it all had to end like this.

It is a shame that it all had to end because, despite all the time he spent building the program, he ultimately did not have total control of it at the end.

It all had to end because he was put into a difficult situation by something another member of his program did.
