In this Nov. 20, 2004, file photo, Penn State coach Joe Paterno waves to the crowd in the fourth quarter of Penn State's 37-13 win over Michigan State in an NCAA college football game in State College, Pa. Penn State trustees fired Paterno and university president Graham Spanier amid the growing furor over how the school handled sex abuse allegations against an assistant coach. The massive shakeup Wednesday night, Nov. 9, 2011, came hours after Paterno announced that he planned to retire at the end of his 46th season. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File)
