I've seen some stories where he's just in critical condition. Others where he's already dead. Whatever the case may be, I wish his family the best. Wish he could have gone out on a cleaner note (football wise), but may his family have some peace.

Post the official article if you find it here please.

He's in serious condition, but not dead. CBS mis-reported that he had died earlier, and they've now apologized.

Fired Penn State coach Joe Paterno dead at 85
By GENARO C. ARMAS | Associated Press – 4 mins 49 secs ago


STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Happy Valley was perfect for Joe Paterno, a place where "JoePa" knew best, where he not only won more football games than any other major college coach, but won them the right way: with integrity and sportsmanship. A place where character came first, championships second.

Behind it all, however, was an ugly secret that ran counter to everything the revered coach stood for.

Paterno, a sainted figure at Penn State for almost half a century but scarred forever by the child sex abuse scandal that brought his career to a stunning end, died Sunday at age 85.

His death came just over two months after his son Scott announced on Nov. 18 that his father had been diagnosed with a treatable form of lung cancer. The cancer was found during a follow-up visit for a bronchial illness. A few weeks later, Paterno broke his pelvis after a fall but did not need surgery.

Paterno had been in the hospital since Jan. 13 for observation after what his family called minor complications from his cancer treatments. Not long before that, he conducted his only interview since losing his job, with The Washington Post. Paterno was described as frail then, speaking mostly in a whisper and wearing a wig. The second half of the two-day interview was conducted at his bedside.

His family released a statement Sunday morning to announce his death: "His loss leaves a void in our lives that will never be filled."

"He died as he lived," the statement said. "He fought hard until the end, stayed positive, thought only of others and constantly reminded everyone of how blessed his life had been. His ambitions were far reaching, but he never believed he had to leave this Happy Valley to achieve them. He was a man devoted to his family, his university, his players and his community."

Regardless of how you felt about him in light of the Sandusky scandal, this is a sad end to the life and legacy of Joe Pa.
