Penn State football coach Joe Paterno struggled to hear Steve Dueming's questions during a Sunday interview on WDAE in Tampa Bay, Fla.

After telling Dueming to speak up, the 83-year-old coach started whispering that he couldn't hear anything.

"I can't hear a word you're saying. Hang on just a second," Paterno said. "Hey, see if you can get it, I can't. Are you there?"

Dueming tried talking as loud as he could, but the interview ended after nearly two minutes.

It was transcribed by Sports Radio Interviews.
