A headline I never thought I'd see, let alone write, in my lifetime. Joe Paterno is no longer the head football coach of the Penn State Nittany Lions.

A few hours after Paterno indicated he would retire at the end of the 2011 season, the Penn State University Board of Trustees announced at a press conference that Paterno had been removed from his position, replaced by interim head coach Tom Bradley. Joe Paterno was fired.

University president Graham Spanier is also out, replaced on an interim basis by provost Dr. Rodney Erickson.

I'm so glad my grandfather Ed isn't alive to see Paterno fall like this. He absolutely loved Penn State football and I can only imagine the heartache he would feel tonight. I only know the empty pit in my stomach.
