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.

Degregg - I have been thinking the same thing - what if mcquery was a victim and it is a payoff - the now have at least 20 victims - do***ented abuse back to 1998 - and now a 24 year old victim as come forward - sandusky was best friends w/ mcquery's father and sanudsky was a youth fb coach, that is where he cultivated his victims - it's speculation - but just saying i bet this is a lot worse than we know

I think the football game scheduled for this weekend with Penn State should be canceled. F_ _ K football. Send a strong message to the world. And McQuery should be charged by police and fired. (Does McQuery have children? How would he like his children to be sexually molested while other adults had full knowledge? I think that McQuery and Paterno may have also been involved in the sexual molestations as that would explain their silence.

Good! He and the others should be fired too. He should have gone to law enforcement instead. I don't see how this guy sleep at night.

He is a coward! When he saw the coach in the shower with the young boy all he had to do was walk up to him and yell "What are you doing with that boy?" The coach would have been so nervous about just getting busted he would have been stopped in his tracks and started making up exuses that it wasn't what it looked like.

Instead McQueary turned his back and did nothing and allowed the boy to be anally violated without trying to stop it. He should be arrested and charged too, sorry telling the athletic director wasn't good enough. If that was me the coach wouldn't have been able to rape the boy, because I would be throwing so many punches into his face he would of had to worry about defending himself from my fists and raping a boy would no longer be on his to do list.

I mean here we got a case of gay pedophilia and wouldn't you know the man who 'caught the act' is named McQUEARY. Spelled wrong but the gist of it comes through loud and clear. Not to mention his reaction, leaving and calling his dad and then telling Paterno THE NEXT DAY tells ME he's light in the loafers too and didn't wanna rat his fellow MO. I mean, you just can't make this stuff up. :(

It was the right decision by Penn State but for the wrong reasons, they should have pulled him from the game but not because fearing for his safety they should have done it because of the lack of fear for the safety for the child he saw getting raped. He saw a 10 year old boy getting raped and did nothing. He should not be in any position in that college, the fact that they have not fired him and are trying to sweep all this under the rug shows how morally bankrupt the whole institution is. They should be ashamed of themselves.
