Former Penn State assistant coaches Greg Schiano and Tom Bradley knew that Jerry Sandusky, their colleague on Joe Paterno’s football staff, was acting improperly with young boys years before law-enforcement authorities were first notified, according to testimony from former Penn State assistant Mike McQueary that was unsealed Tuesday by a Philadelphia court.

Schiano did a good job as an assistant at Ohio State and found himself back at Rutgers, getting hired one year ago today in fact. He has the Scarlet Knights playing well, and they come into Saturday’s game off a 37-30 victory at Purdue.

Franklin, meanwhile, led Penn State to a Big Ten championship in 2016 and has done excellent work the past four seasons. But this year’s 0-5 start caused a large portion of the fan base to turn on him.

There’s no doubt about it, though: Franklin was the right hire in 2014.

Still, Penn State had better beat Rutgers and Schiano on Saturday, or else the fan base likely will lose its collective mind with frustration aimed toward Franklin.
