Witness testimony: Schiano, Bradley knew about Sandusky abuse
Former Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary testified in 2015 that former Nittany Lions assistant coaches Greg Schiano and Tom Bradley were aware that Jerry Sandusky was abusing children.
McQueary testified that when he told Bradley he had seen Sandusky abusing a boy in a Penn State shower, Bradley was “not shocked.” McQueary also said Bradley told him that Schiano had witnessed something similar.
“I can’t remember if it was one night or one morning, but that Greg had come into [Bradley’s] office white as a ghost and said he just say Jerry doing something to a boy in the shower,” McQueary said in his deposition. “And that’s it. That’s all he ever told me.”
Schiano said Tuesday he was unaware of Sandusky’s abuse while at the school.

Bradley also denied he was aware of an alleged incidents.
McQueary’s 2015 deposition was unsealed Tuesday along with several other court documents, including a Sandusky accuser’s testimony that he told Joe Paterno in 1976 he was abused by Sandusky.
McQueary was the wide receivers coach at Penn State from 2004 to 2011. Schiano was a graduate assistant and defensive backs coach for the Nittany Lions from 1990 to 1995. He was later the head coach at Rutgers and for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Schiano is currently co-defensive coordinator at Ohio State.
Bradley coached at Penn State from 1979 to 2011 and was the interim head coach after Paterno was fired in the wake of the Sandusky scandal. He is currently the defensive coordinator for UCLA.
