The parents of Penn State Football players were on a teleconference last night with the new coach, who advised them to help their kids out by getting some counseling ... TMZ has learned.

Two of the parents who were on the call tell us ...Tom Bradley advised the group that the school had counselors available to help the players cope.

The parents were most concerned about the safety of their kids.  Bradley said security would be beefed up, with both Penn State police and outside law enforcement present at the game.

And, Bradley said, there would be both "coaching and staff changes," although he was not specific.

As far as Mike McQueary's future is concerned, Bradley said "it'll be a game-to-game decision."
