Sue Paterno Told To Leave Penn State Campus Pool: Report

Posted: Updated:

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — A person close to former Penn State coach Joe Paterno's family tells The Associated Press his wife was turned away from a campus pool.

Sue Paterno is an avid swimmer. The person who requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation said the rejection left the family saddened.

A university spokesman said he was unaware of any directive.

School trustees fired Joe Paterno on Nov. 9 from the job he held for nearly a half-century in the aftermath of child sex abuse charges against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.

Paterno also was recently diagnosed with a treatable form of lung cancer. The person said the coach was focused on beating the illness "and seeing the full truth" emerge.

The Patriot News of Harrisburg first reported the pool rejection.
