Penn State Interim Coach Tom Bradley Says He’ll Meet With Players’ Parents

Penn State interim football coach Tom Bradley said he will meet with players’ parents and recruits tonight, a day after Joe Paterno was fired.

Bradley takes over the program after the university trustees dismissed President Graham Spanier and Paterno amid a scandal involved child sex-abuse charges against former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. Neither Spanier nor Paterno were charged.

Speaking at a televised news conference from the State College, Pennsylvania, campus, Bradley also said he has heard no discussions about canceling the school’s two football games after this weekend’s contest against the University of Nebraska.
