Penn State and NCAA Reach Agreement on Paterno’s Wins
With the reinstatement of the wins former head coach Joe Paterno is once again the winningest coach in college football history. Paterno’s record for his 46 year career will be 409-136-3. The school’s bowl ban was lifted prior to the 2014 season and they will receive all scholarships this coming fall.
The new agreement stems from a lawsuit brought by Pennsylvania state Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman and state Treasuer Rob McCord seeking to ensure that all of the $60 million fine was spent on programs inside the state of Pennsylvania and not nationwide.
