LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne says
he feels bad about the circumstances surrounding the death of fired
Penn State football coach Joe Paterno.
The legendary former Nebraska football coach said Sunday that
Paterno was a "genuinely good person" who had a remarkable impact
on college football.
Paterno won more football games than any other coach before
being fired in November amid a child sex scandal involving a former
assistant coach.
Osborne says the emotional turmoil of the past few weeks may
have contributed to Paternor's death.
Osborne, who coached against Paterno, says he always knew
Paterno stood for the right things.
