Joe Paterno, the legendary Penn State head football coach, has passed away. The family released a statement announcing his death a short time ago.

He was 85-years-old. Just yesterday, his wife called the family and friends to the hospital for him to say a final goodbye.

He was in the hospital in recent days for being treated for lung cancer. He was diagnosed with lung cancer in mid-November after a bronchial illness.

He has had a black mark on his name in recent months due to the case against former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. This led to him losing his job in November.

But he should be forever remembered as to what he’s done for the football team and around Happy Valley. He has given $4 million dollars back to the school.

Now, JoePa gets to go back to his Happy Valley and be honored for everything that he’s accomplished in his long life.
