STATE COLLEGE, Pa. — Assistant coach Jay Paterno returned to his father's home after the first Penn State game in six decades without JoePa as the boss.
The 17-14 loss Saturday to Nebraska may have been the last time anyone from the Paterno family departed a game at Beaver Stadium, the facility Joe Pareno turned into college football shrine.
The 84-uear-old Hall of Famer was fired last week in the aftermath of shocking child sexual abuse charges against former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky.
Jay Paterno remains on staff, though it's unclear how much longer he'll stay after the school embroiled in turmoil eventually gets around to hiring a new head coach.
For now, Paterno is expected to move from the press box to the sideline the rest of the season to relay play calls.
