Penn State administrators have canceled Joe Paterno’s weekly news conference in which he was expected to field questions about a sex abuse scandal involving a former assistant coach.

“Due to the ongoing legal circumstances centered around the recent allegations and charges, we have determined that today’s press conference cannot be held and will not be rescheduled,” the university said in a statement

Paterno’s son, Scott, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the decision was made by president Graham Spanier’s office.

Scott Paterno says his father was disappointed and was prepared to take questions about the scandal as well as Penn State’s upcoming Big Ten game against Nebraska.
