Sue Paterno is breaking her silence more than a year after her husband’s death.
Paterno sent a letter to hundreds of former Penn State football players Friday defending her late husband. She revealed in the letter she and her family will release their analysis of the Freeh Report on Sunday.
The report released last summer brought into question what – and when – Joe Paterno knew about allegations of sexual abuse by Jerry Sandusky.
“I was as shocked as anyone by the findings and by Mr. Freeh’s extraordinary attack on Joe’s character and integrity. I am here to tell you as definitively and forcefully as I know how that Mr. Freeh could not have been more wrong in his assessment of Joe. Joe was exactly the moral, disciplined, and demanding man you knew him to be,” Paterno wrote in the letter.
The counter report will be released Sunday morning on ESPN and Paterno.com.
