Joe Paterno died Sunday, and the Penn State Campus came together Sunday in an outpouring of support for the school's former head football coach.
The coach, who was 85 and major-college football's all-time wins leader, was at the head of the football program at Penn State University in State College, Penn., for 46 years before he died Sunday from lung cancer.
The Penn State campus came together Sunday to remember their beloved JoePa, and ceremonies were held at his statue on campus and near him home in State College to mourn the man who was long the face of Penn State.
Paterno's amazing record at Penn State was stained near the end when he was fired by the school last year for his role in not reporting Jerry Sandusky, a coach under Paterno, for his alleged extensive involvement in the sexual abuse of young boys both on and off the campus.
But the school's students and football program in large part remember Paterno as the grand old man of Penn State, and they showed their love for him Sunday.
