On Monday, NBC’s Today Show will broadcast an interview with former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
Sandusky, 69, was disgraced when he was convicted of 45 counts of child sex abuse in October and sentenced to 30-60 years in prison. He is currently at a prison in Pennsylvania.
He is expected to tell his side of the story in the interview, which will include Sandusky discussing his late boss Joe Paterno, who was fired from his post as Penn State’s head coach after it was revealed that he had knowledge of Sandusky sexually molesting boys on campus but did not alert authorities. Paterno died in Jan. 2012.
Sandusky is also expected to discuss Mike McQueary, who informed Paterno of Sandusky showering with a boy in a locker room in 2001.
The AP reported that McQueary is currently pursuing a defamation and whistleblower lawsuit against Penn State.
“He’ll describe in his own words what he says happened on the Penn State campus,” Today host Matt Lauer said Friday, according to The Washington Post.
