NBC airs Sandusky interview

The SportsXchange

NBC's "The Today Show" aired a jailhouse interview of former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, who was convicted last year on 45 counts of sexually abusing boys.

In the interview with documentary filmmaker John Zieglar, Sandusky said that witness Mike McQueary's testimony was not accurate.

NBC ran part of the three-hour interview. Zieglar's film aims to clear former Penn State coach Joe Paterno of any wrong doing. Paterno was implicated in the scandal for not doing enough when told about Sandusky's abuse.

The interview took place in a Pennsylvania jail with Sandusky behind bars.

Sandusky questioned the testimony of McQueary, a former Penn State assistant coach who said that he believed he witnessed Sandusky having sex with a boy in a locker room shower.

"I don't understand how anybody would have walked into that locker room, from where he was, and heard sounds associated that was sex going on," Sandusky said in the interview. "I mean, that would have been the last thing I would have thought about. I would have thought maybe fooling around or something like that."

McQueary then went to Paterno the next day and told Paterno what he witnessed, according to the grand jury indictment of Sandusky and an independent investigation performed by former FBI director Louis Freeh. After Paterno spoke with then-athletic director Tim Curley and then-vice president Gary Schultz, they decided not to report Sandusky to the police.

Ziegler's film, "The Framing of Joe Paterno," tries to demonstrate that McQueary did not tell Paterno that he saw a child being sexually abused and Paterno did not purposely ignore the abuse accusations toward Sandusky.

The Freeh report alleges that Paterno, Curley and Schultz, who are all no longer employed by the university, conspired to cover up the allegations to protect the football program. Paterno died in January of 2012.

Sandusky was asked by Zieglar whether Paterno would have allowed Sandusky to continue coaching at Penn State if he suspected that Sandusky was a pedophile.

"If he absolutely thought I was (a pedophile) I'd say no," Sandusky said. "If he had a suspicion, I don't know the answer to that."

In a statement, the Paterno family called the interview "misguided and inappropriate."
