Report: Joe Paterno's Wife, Son To Run For Penn State Board Seats

Joe Paterno's wife Sue, and son, Jay, are reportedly running for seats on the Penn State Board of Trustees.

According to a report from John Clay of WTAJ-TV, the Paterno name may be restored to a position of power at Penn State, as the wife of the late Joe Paterno, Sue, as well as their son, Jay, are in the running for seats on the Penn State Board Of Trustees.

"Sue Paterno is accepting nominations to become a member of the Penn State Board of Trustees and her son, Jay Paterno is also running for a seat on the board," per Clay.

There are three positions up for election, and according to the report, it's expected to be a "tough race" for those opposing Sue and Jay.

Nomination ballots will be accepted until February 25, and the ballot will be emailed out to alumni on April 10. Voting will close on May 4.
