Sandusky scandal leaves former Md. AD ‘appalled’
“It’s ridiculous,” Geiger said. “Obviously, the guy was rehired every year by the head coach. It’s the head coach’s responsibility. And the athletic director and president should have had oversight.
Paterno’s news conference in State College, Pa., on Tuesday afternoon was canceled by the university shortly before it was scheduled to begin. Paterno also didn’t appear on the weekly Big Ten coaches’ teleconference.
Sandusky’s name surfaced again in 1996 during Maryland’s football coach search when Debbie Yow was athletic director. Yow, now at N.C. State in the same position, remembered a phone conversation with Sandusky about the job described as a “brief encounter.” Again, she made no job offer. Beyond that, Yow declined via email to “revisit history of 15 years ago.”
