Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary said in an email to former teammates that the “truth is not out there fully” regarding his involvement in the grand jury indictment of former Penn State assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, according to Peter Alexander of NBC News.
“I did the right thing…you guys know me…the truth is not out there fully…I didn’t just turn and run…I made sure it stopped…I had to make quick tough decisions,” McQueary said in the email, according to a series of tweets from Alexander.
In 2002, McQueary was the graduate assistant who reportedly saw former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky sexually assaulting a young boy in the shower at the Penn State athletic facility. McQueary told the grand jury that he reported the incident to former head coach Joe Paterno, who was fired late Wednesday night. McQueary did not coach in Penn State’s game against Nebraska on Saturday and is reportedly in “protective custody.”
