Mike McQueary Says He’s In “Protective Custody”
Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary, placed on paid leave, told his players, “I’m not your coach anymore.”
He also stunned them with an apparent attempt at gallows humor that he was “in protective custody” at a secluded location, a joke that fell flat. The players believed he was serious…
During a brief and emotional conversation, McQueary told them, “I wanted to let you guys know I’m not your coach anymore. I’m done.”
When players asked, “Coach, where are you? Can we see you?” McQueary responded, “No, I’m actually in protective custody. I’m not in State College.”
However, several hours later, Sports Information Director Jeff Nelson said that McQueary was not in protective custody – that his characterization was not true, raising the prospect that it was an attempt at black humor that fell flat. The players did not get the joke and were still shaken by the comment when the call ended.Click here for reuse options!
