HARRISBURG, Pa. -- Penn State football coach Joe Paterno, told by a teenage boy in 1976 that assistant coach Jerry Sandusky molested him in a shower, responded that he didnt want to hear about it and had a football season to worry about, according to court documents unsealed Tuesday.The boy, now a man identified as John Doe 150, said in 2014 that other boys in a shower heard him yell that Sandusky had just touched him sexually. He said he told several adults about it before seeking out Paterno.Is it accurate that Coach Paterno quickly said to you, `I dont want to hear about any of that kind of stuff, I have a football season to worry about? a lawyer for Penn States insurance carrier asked the man.Specifically, yes, the man replied.I was shocked, disappointed, offended. I was insulted, John Doe 150 testified. I said, `Is that all youre going to do?He said Paterno just walked away.Excerpts of the mans testimony were among dozens of documents made public Tuesday in Penn States fight with Pennsylvania Manufacturers Association Insurance Co. over payments to Sanduskys accusers. Sandusky was convicted in 2012 of dozens of child sexual abuse counts and is serving decades in prison while he appeals.A judge disclosed the existence of the 1976 allegation two months ago, along with claims Penn State coaches witnessed inappropriate contact between Sandusky and children in the 1980s, but the newly unsealed documents provided greater detail.Paterno told a grand jury in 2011 he first learned of Sanduskys inappropriate sexual contact in 2001, though records show high-ranking Penn State officials dealt with a complaint in 1998 from a woman whose son had showered with Sandusky.Paterno died in January 2012, two months after Sanduskys arrest. A lawyer for his family said elements of John Doe 150s story defy all logic and theres evidence that stands in stark contrast to his claims.A lawyer for Sandusky, who retired in 1999, also denied the allegation.Testimony made public Tuesday suggested some Penn State coaches were aware of Sanduskys abuse decades ago.Mike McQueary, a former assistant coach who told Paterno he saw Sandusky abusing a boy in a team shower in 2001, said in a 2015 deposition former defensive coordinator Tom Bradley was not shocked when told of it.Bradley, who briefly took over as head coach after Paternos firing, said he knew of some things about Sandusky dating to the 1980s, McQueary testified.McQueary said Bradley told him hed been approached by someone in the 80s who saw Sandusky doing something to a boy and in the 90s former assistant coach Greg Schiano saw Sandusky in the shower with a boy.Bradley, now the defensive coordinator at UCLA, and Schiano, who holds the same position at Ohio State, denied witnessing any inappropriate behavior at Penn State.The newly unsealed documents also provide additional information about 1987 and 1988 encounters accusers say were witnessed by coaching staff.A man called John Doe 75 said in a 2014 deposition assistant football coach Joe Sarra walked into a coaches meeting room in 1987 and saw Sandusky with his hands down the then-13-year-old boys shorts.John Doe 75 said Sarra may have said something like, Oh, sorry, and immediately walked out. Sarra died four years ago.A 2014 deposition by a man called John Doe 101 said Sandusky fondled him when he was a boy inside a crowded Penn State pool and coaches often saw him showering with Sandusky. But the one coach the man named said he wasnt working there at the time.The records also include an insurance company lawyers analysis that Penn State overpaid to settle with Sanduskys accusers, possibly as a result of the universitys concern about publicity and a desire to resolve the matter quickly.Lawyer Eric Anderson said Penn State made little effort, if any, to verify the credibility of the claims. The university has paid $92 million to settle claims from 32 Sandusky accusers.Lawyer Ken Feinberg, who helped mediate claims against the university, said the process was very objective and none of the cases was easy to resolve. He said Penn State was diligent in making sure the claims were supported by sufficient proof.---Associated Press writers Maryclaire Dale and Michael R.

Patrick Mahomes II Chiefs Jersey. -- Arizona raced out to a big lead and did not back off, hitting the accelerator instead. SAN DIEGO -- While speculation swirls about what might lie ahead for the Chargers and their head coach, Mike McCoy said Monday that he was more focused on the near future.We got to worry about going on the road and playing Cleveland, he said. That is my No. 1 concern right now.Still, many questions linger after a tough 19-16 loss to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday that said a lot about where the Chargers stand right now. The score almost took a backseat to the environment, in which thousands of Raiders fans filled Qualcomm Stadium and black and silver were more prevalent than Chargers colors.The Chargers (5-9) were even forced to use a silent count on offense because of the noise generated by the Oakland contingent.It stinks, said McCoy. Its not what you want. Its unfortunate. But I think the players and coaches responded the right way.Worries about the Chargers potentially relocating to Los Angeles, and consecutive losing seasons, have demoralized the fan base.Everyone is frustrated, McCoy said. These players and coaches work extremely hard and they deserve to win these games.But that seldom happens of late. The Chargers have lost 21 of 30 games and 12 of their past 13 against AFC West foes.McCoys Chargers have sunk to the depths of the last-place Chargers squads from the 2000 and 2001 seasons. They won a combined six games over two years and were the last Chargers teams to produce consecutive losing seasons.Mike Riley, the coach of those teams, was fired after the 2001 season.The ball doesnt always bounce your way from year to year, McCoy said. There are certain teams that have gotten every break in the business this year. I was on one of those in Carolina in 2003 when we went to thhe Super Bowl.ddddddddddddMcCoy was also on the Panthers staff two years earlier when Carolina went 1-15. Then, and now, he knows where the blame lands.Im the head coach, he said. I take full responsibility for all those mistakes. Thats my role and I understand that. (But) no one is out there trying to make a mistake.McCoy, a first-time head coach at any level, is 27-35 in his three-plus seasons. He broke fast in 2013 when leading the Chargers to a road AFC divisional playoff win over the Bengals. Since then, theres been little to celebrate.McCoy said he hasnt been offered a contract extension. Its routine that a coach receives an extension going into the final year of his deal but McCoy said there havent been discussions about one.McCoy is clear about wanting to return.I love my job, I love what I do, he said. This is the greatest job in the world. I love working for these players and coaches and being the leader of this group. We got a special group of people that are very talented.McCoy said he feels for Chargers fans anxious about the team leaving. But that, just like his job security, will be determined by team chairman Dean Spanos.Dean has said he will make his decision after the season is over, McCoy said about the team moving to L.A. Theres nothing that has been finalized. We are focused on the next two weeks, on what we need to do, and especially this week in what we have to do in Cleveland. We have to find a way to win the next one and that is what it is all about.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale Jerseys  Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Authentic Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '
