Paterno’s son: ‘Dad, you won. You can go home now’
Legendary coach » At the Penn St. memorial, Jay Paterno reflected on what he called the “magnificent daylight” of his father’s life.

Chris Marrone, another former player who eulogized Paterno, said Knight was his "new hero" for expressing the "pent-up frustration" of Paterno’s supporters.

"I think the response that he got is indicative of how folks feel," Marrone said.

Only one member of the university administration — the dean of the college of liberal arts — and no one from the board of trustees spoke at the memorial, which was arranged primarily by the Paterno family.

People said it felt good to remember and celebrate the good times.

Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak, who played for Paterno, said he attended the service "because I’m a part of his legacy."

"It was not only about football," Munchak said. "It was about life and how he affected all of us as men."
