An exclusive interview with former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky will air Monday on the "Today" show, according to a show release.

It will be the first televised interview of Sandusky since he was sent to prison following his conviction on 45 of 48 counts of child sex abuse in June of 2012.

According to the "Today" show release:

The former longtime defensive coordinator will describe what he says happened on the campus, and what he thinks of whistleblower Mike McQueary and late head coach Joe Paterno. Sandusky spoke with Bob Costas in phone interview on Rock Center in November 2011, declaring he was innocent of all charges. When asked by Costas, "Are you a pedophile," Sandusky responded, "No." When asked if he had a sexual attraction to underage boys, Sandusky said, "I enjoy young people. I love to be around them, but no, I'm not sexually attracted to young boys."
