Penn State

Mike McQueary will NOT

Coach Against Nebraska

11/10/2011 9:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Mike McQueary
Penn State has announced receivers coach Mike McQueary -- the man who witnessed Jerry Sandusky allegedly rape a boy in the PSU locker room in 2002 -- will NOT coach against Nebraska on Saturday ... out of fear for McQueary's safety.

The university released a statement reading, "Due to multiple threats made against assistant coach Mike McQueary, the university has decided it would be in the best interest of all for assistant coach McQueary not to be in attendance at Saturday's Nebraska game."

McQueary has been under fire for not doing anything to stop the alleged rape -- and then going to Joe Paterno instead of the police.  

Important to note ... McQueary was NOT pulled from the game because officials felt he did something wrong ... he was pulled for safety reasons. 

Unbelievable.

Will be interesting to see what the student and faculty reaction will be as Mikey strolls the campus now that the facts are out. Wonder if he had Sandsky over for dinner over the years. Would he have let him watch his kids? Maybe if it entailed a promotion. Wonder if parents will allow him to coach their kids at the local school.

Why wasn't this guy fired? His actions were by far the most irresponsible. You witness a child being raped and you stand there like a brain dead idiot and do nothing? And on top of that, he didn't even think to alert authorities! WTF?

He did do something about it....he told someone. My question is....why was a ten year old in the locker room? Maybe I'm missing some information.....If it were me..I would have immediately called the police because a child being sexually molested overrides an "institution" and before the police arrived..I might have beat the man up! Children have to be protected by us adults...they can't protect themselves

This is so ridiculous. McQueary was 28-year old grown man when he witnessed this disgusting crime. He ran away like a little baby, told his daddy, and waited a whole day before - not informing the authorities - but telling Joe Paterno. After that, he goes back to ignorant bliss. I am surprised that McQueary has still not been fired. He deserves it, as well as some prison time.
