Penn State interim coach has 'mixed emotions' about replacing Paterno

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - New Penn State coach Tom Bradley says he is replacing Joe Paterno with "very mixed emotions."
The defensive coordinator was appointed interim coach by Penn
State's board of trustees after it fired Paterno on Wednesday night
in the wake of a child sex-abuse scandal involving former assistant
Jerry Sandusky. Bradley will coach the Nittany Lions through the
end of the season, starting with Saturday's home finale against
Bradley played for Paterno and has been on the Nittany Lions
staff for 33 years. He has been considered the leading in-house
candidate to replace his Hall of Fame boss.
