McQueary Sues Penn State

October 3, 2012

Mike McQueary, the former assistant football coach at Pennsylvania State University, is suing the institution for $4 million, saying he was forced out of his job for reporting an incident in which he saw Jerry Sandusky engaged in inappropriate behavior with a boy, The Centre Daily Times reported. Penn State officials have said that the suit is baseless. But McQueary's suit says that he was forced out of his job and that he is unable to get work in football coaching because of the Penn State scandal, and the perception created by some at the university that he was was part of a cover-up.
