Lawyers for an alleged victim of former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky released voicemails obtained by TMZ.com in which Sandusky is heard trying to coach the victim on what to say to police, according to the lawyers.

Lawyers for the alleged victim released the voicemails today -- and announced plans to sue Penn State University for failing to stop Sandusky's abuse. Part of the voicemail says, "But there is nothing really to hide so. Um. If you want, give me a call ... I love you."

The alleged victim has not been identified, but his lawyers claim he "suffered extensive sexual abuse over many years both before and after the 2001 incident Michael McQueary witnessed" in a Penn State locker room shower.

The voicemails were left in September 2011. Sandusky is currently in jail and awaits sentencing after being convicted of 45 sex abuse counts.

"Our client has to live the rest of his life not only dealing with the effects of Sandusky's childhood sexual abuse, but also with the knowledge that many powerful adults, including those at the highest levels of Penn State, put their own interests and the interests of a child predator above their legal obligations to protect him," the victims' lawyers said in a statement.
