83 year old Joe Paterno said today at his weekly press conference that he plans to return as Penn State coach next season.
“I’m looking forward to it,” Paterno said. “I think we can be a pretty good football team next year, and I’d like to be a part of it. … It’s been a good situation and I don’t see any reason to leave it right now.”
Penn State (7-4, 4-3) host No. 10 Michigan State in the regular-season finale on Saturday.
