Longtime Penn State play by play voice Steve Jones shared details of legendary coach Joe Paterno’s firing late last evening in State College Pennsylvania. The winningest coach in major college football history was unceremoniously dumped Wednesday night along with Penn State president Graham Spanier, fired in phone calls by a board of trustees fed up with the damage being done to the university’s reputation by a child sex-abuse scandal involving Paterno’s one-time heir apparent. Jones talked with Dave Lee early Thursday morning.
