Penn State: McQueary placed on administrative leave

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Penn State assistant coach Mike
McQueary, a key witness in the child sex abuse scandal that has
engulfed the school, has been placed on administrative leave.
School president Rod Erickson announced the move Friday, a day
after the school said McQueary would not be present when the
Nittany Lions play Nebraska on Saturday because he had received
threats.
McQueary testified in a grand jury investigation that eventually
led to child sex-abuse charges being filed against former defensive
coordinator Jerry Sandusky. The ensuing scandal brought down
longtime coach Joe Paterno, who was fired by university trustees
amid growing criticism that he should have done more to stop the
alleged abuse.
