I was talking to a friend when PSU fired him and I said that I bet he didnt live much longer.
No matter what you think, Joe was a legend and what happened over the past 4 months was unfortunate. Coaching was probably giving him something to live for and then add on all the scrutiny he was under. Sad sad end to a legendary career. Lets not forget he was a 85 year old man. As he stated, the allegations brought to his attention he felt were over his head and he didn't know how to handle them so passed them off to someone he thought would.
