Penn State Trustees

Reportedly Ask New Coach

to Keep McQueary Off Sidelines

11/10/2011 2:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Penn State board of trustees have reportedly asked new head football coach Tom Bradley to keep Mike McQueary from coaching from the sidelines on Saturday ... out of fear for McQueary's safety.

According to Pennsylvania's Morning Call newspaper ... the board does not plan to fire McQueary or ask him to step down.

McQueary is the person who claims he witnessed Jerry Sandusky raping a pre-teen boy in the Penn State locker room in 2002 ... and reported it to Joe Paterno.

While JoePa was fired for failing to contact police -- McQueary still has a job, despite the fact he also didn't call cops ... and worse yet, he didn't try to stop Sandusky from raping the boy when he had the chance.

It's unclear if Coach Bradley will pull McQueary from the sidelines on Saturday ... or have him coach from the skybox ... or instruct him to simply stay home.

The Board of Trustees at Penn State say the institution is bigger than the game of football. Really? Does this prove it?

I think the only reason this coward has a job is because of lawyers. If they fire him he may turn around and sue the University because he was the whistle blower, sick system we have some times. But, it's better than all others.

this freak saw a boy being raped and he still has a job?i guess it never entered anyones mind especially this idiot when this perv was hurting kids to grab that poor kid and proceed to beat the living hell out of sandusky?? what is wrong with people? do they have no sense right and wrong? he could have saved this boy and others if he had just handled it then and there. so what if he arrested for assault it would have been the best thing this pervert had coming to him. then this whole mess would have been exposed

If I saw that, it would be a quick, instant, both feet, drop kick to the ear of him to knock the bastard off the 10 year old kid, it's so automatic.
He's got some splannin' to do.

Mike McQueary should have been the FIRST person fired. This horrible mess would never have happened to Penn State and Joe Paterno if McQueary would have done the right thing and called the police immediately! Next to Sandusky himself, McQueary is the person to be blamed.

Mike McQueary should be fired too if he knew nothing was being done and didn't care. Just like Paterno.

How could even one person see Sandusky just in the shower with a minor and not call the police!! Everyone knew and covered it up. They ALL should be indicted.

First glaring issue: "The board of trustees HAS reportedly asked..." Or you could say, "The trustees have asked..."
