As a result of anally raping a 20-year old in the Penn State locker room, Paterno takes Sandusky's locker room keys.
McQueary continues to work for the Penn State athletic department and after graduating from graduate school becomes an administrative assistant for the football program. A year later, in 2004, McQueary is hired onto Joe Paterno's staff as the wide receivers coach.
The NCAA limits the number of assistant coaches a football team can have. Most of the time graduate assistants move on to assistant coaching jobs at smaller Division 1AA or Division 2 schools. Will Muschamp went from Auburn as a grad assistant to Division 2 West Georgia as an assistant coach.
One would think McQueary would just want to get the Hell out of Happy Valley for a few years. Instead, he became another participant in the ongoing Sandusky cover-ups.
I smell a payoff: "Just keep quiet Mike, and you'll be on the staff as soon as job opens up."
I also think Sandusky will go nuclear when things get bad. He will sell all kinds of dirt on the Penn State program to pay his legal bills.
I think he kills himself ...; unless the tell all is explosive.
Actually, Curley and Schultz told McQueary they were taking Sandusky's keys to the showers. Paterno was missing from the equation.
And given that molestations of the eight victims apparently occurred in the Lasch building showers (including the 2002 anal rape) and the "East Area Locker Room" next to Holuba Hall (for example, Victim #5; I don't the East Area Locker Room is the Lasch Building), I'm not certain they got all of Sandusky's keys.
