STATE COLLEGE, PA. (AP) - A former assistant coach who says he witnessed a boy being molested in a locker room shower is among those paying his respects to the late Joe Paterno.

Mike McQueary and more than a hundred invited guests are attending a private viewing Tuesday at a campus spiritual center. Hundreds are in line for a public viewing.

Trustees fired Paterno in November, citing his failure to pass on to police McQueary’s account of the alleged encounter involving a boy and former assistant Jerry Sandusky.

Members of Paterno’s last team arrived aboard the same buses that carried them to Beaver Stadium on fall Saturdays. One current and one former player will stand with the casket during the public viewing.

Paterno died Sunday, just over two months after being fired.
