Paterno Focused On Football

By  | 

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- This is the time of year when the coaching carousel spins furiously in college football - not that Joe Paterno is paying much attention.
He's too busy preparing to coach his 500th career game, the
Alamo Bowl in San Antonio on December 29th.
Paterno says he didn't know that Michigan had yet to replace the
retired Lloyd Carr. Or that his good friend and contemporary,
Florida State's Bobby Bowden, had recently named offensive
coordinator Jimbo Fisher as his eventual successor.
The 80-year-old Paterno says he doesn't have a computer or
e-mail.
