The Penn State board of trustees press conference

The Penn State board of trustees announced the firing of head coach Joe Paterno on Wednesday night in the wake of the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

Nittany Lions defensive coordinator Tom Bradley will serve as the team's interim head coach Saturday against Nebraska.

University president Graham Spanier elected to resign Wednesday and will be replaced temporarily by provost Rodney Erickson.

Below is the entire press conference from the board of trustees, led by chairman John Surma. I'm not sure why some of the reporters in the room were reacting so angrily considering the sensitive nature of this whole situation, but you'll hear various people shouting questions at Surma throughout the presser.

Certainly, it was a surreal scene in State College on Wednesday night.
