The Kansas City Chiefs parted ways with Andy Reid today. The firing comes just more than seven months after he was hired to be the team’s head coach and after just two exhibition games.
“Andy was hired to make us a winner,” said Chiefs president Mark Donovan. “We weren’t looking to rebuild here for a few years. We feel we have the talent to win now. We made that very clear to Andy and he understood that an 0-2 record simply wasn’t in line with our goals.”
BELLEFONTE, PA – Jerry Sandusky was sentenced today to at least 30 years in prison — effectively a life sentence — in the child sexual abuse scandal that brought shame to Penn State and led to coach Joe Paterno‘s downfall.
A defiant Sandusky gave a rambling statement in which he denied the allegations and talked about his life in prison and the pain of being away from his family.
Three victims spoke, often fighting back tears. One looked Sandusky in the eyes at times.
The 68-year-old former Penn State assistant coach was found guilty in June of 45 counts of child sexual abuse, convicted of molesting 10 boys over a 15-year period. Witnesses said Sandusky used the charitable organization he founded for troubled children as his personal hunting ground to find and groom boys to become his victims.
His arrest 11 months ago, and the details that came out during his trial over the summer, transformed Sandusky’s public image from a college coach who had been widely admired for his work with The Second Mile charity into that of a reviled pervert who preyed on the very youngsters who sought his help.
