Penn State President Weighing Future of Paterno's Statue

Penn State's president is methodically seeking input from trustees, alumni and other constituencies about the fate of the Joe Paterno statue outside the football stadium.

The monument has becoming a lightning rod since the release of
an investigative report claiming the Hall of Fame football coach
concealed child sex abuse allegations against Jerry Sandusky more
than a decade ago.

A decision from President Rodney Erickson is expected next week.

The statue is nearly 7 feet tall and weighing more than 900 pounds. It was built in 2001 in honor of Paterno's record-setting 324th Division 1 coaching victory and his "contributions to the university."
