UF Gator commentator speaks out about Penn State sex scandal

By on November 15th, 2011

The former Penn State assistant football coach at the heart of a child sex-abuse scandal, Jerry Sandusky spoke for the first time last night with NBC’s Bob Costas along with his lawyer Joe Amendola.  In the interview Sandusky maintained his innocence saying he is not a pedophile.  While the details surrounding the case continue to leak out, Athletic Departments at colleges and universities across the country are paying close attention to how legal procedures were or were not followed in the case.  Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Jordan Matich spoke with Gator Radio Network Color Commentator Lee McGriff.  McGriff is a former Florida Gators Wide Receiver and Assistant Coach.  He talked about the events unfolding at Penn State and gave his perspective as a former athlete, current broadcaster and father of athletes.
