Various court documents from the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal have been released, and they reveal how much Penn State coaches knew about the abused committed by the former Nittany Lions defensive coordinator before the story broke in 2011. In a deposition of Mike McQueary, the former Penn State quarterback and coach who witnessed Sandusky assaulting a 10-year old boy in 2002, he revealed that former defensive coordinator Tom Bradley was “not shocked” when hearing about what he had seen, because he was aware of previous allegations against Sandusky. Bradley, who is now at UCLA, told McQueary that in the 1990s, Greg Schiano also witnessed Sandusky “doing something to a boy in the shower.”
Bradley coached in various roles at Penn State from 1979 to 2011. In 2014, he joined the staff at West Virginia, and is currently the defensive coordinator at UCLA. Schiano served as a graduate assistant and then defensive backs coach at Penn State from 1990 to 1995. He went on to spend 10 years as head coach at Rutgers and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He is currently entering his first season as co-defensive coordinator at Ohio State.
Earlier today, released testimony from one of Sandusky’s victims revealed that former head coach Joe Paterno was made aware of an allegation of abuse against Sandusky in 1976.
