Former Penn State assistant coach to sue university

Mike McQueary files preliminary paperwork for whistleblower lawsuit

Last fall, news broke that top officials at Pennsylvania State University didn’t report allegations that former football coach Jerry Sandusky sexually abused underage boys—some on the school’s campus—for 15 years. The Penn State sex scandal scorched the school’s reputation and saw the departure of formerly esteemed officials, including the school’s president and its legendary football coach Joe Paterno.

Now, Mike McQueary, the assistant football coach whose eyewitness testimony was central to the scandal, plans to sue the university.
