Joe Paterno Twice Addresses Students Showing Support Outside Head Coach’s Home (Videos)


November 8, 2011

Joe Paterno didn't get a chance to talk to the media on Tuesday as his weekly news conference was shut down by Penn State officials. 

However, no one could stop the long-time Nittany Lions head coach from addressing Penn State students Tuesday night.

Throngs of students camped out outside Paterno's residence in a show of support for Paterno who has been heavily criticized for his role in the Jerry Sandusky saga. 

Students repeatedly chanted for Paterno, and he obliged on two occasions. In a bizarre scene, Paterno addressed the students at first from his front door. Later, he came out to his front lawn for a quick interaction with the students.

See both in the videos below.
