The author of a new biography of Joe Paterno says the late Penn State coach and his family never tried to limit his access to them after the Jerry Sandusky scandal broke.
Joe Paterno had to be prodded by his family to read the grand jury report regarding Jerry Sandusky and did not understand some of its graphic terminology, according to a new book.
"(Paterno's children) believed that if the truth came out that people would see their father for what he was," said Posnanski, who has worked for The Kansas City Star and Sports Illustrated. "So I reached for that."
"No person could live up to those stories," Posnanski said.
