Legendary Football Coach, Joe Paterno, 85, has died

Over the last few days Joe Paterno had experienced further health complications, recently suffering a broken pelvis in addition to battling lung cancer. Sunday, former Penn State football coach, Joe Paterno, 85, has succumbed to his illness.

Throngs of Penn Sate students gathered in front of a statue of Joe Paterno early Sunday, braving freezing temperatures to pay tribute to the then ailing legendary ex-coach.

Some shoveled snow so others could walk up and touch Paterno’s outstretched hand on the statue. Paterno, 85, was in serious condition at Mount Nittany Medical Center in State College, Pennsylvania, after suffering from lung cancer and a broken pelvis.

His family will have no comment on the situation and asks that their privacy be respected during this difficult time said Dan McGinn, the family spokesman.
