Joe Paterno Book Excerpt Published in GQ

An excerpt of the highly anticipated Joe Paterno biography written by sportswriter Joe Posnanski, Paterno, has been published in the September issue of GQ, which is on newsstands now. The digital version of the excerpt will be published, in full, on August 20th, the day before the book hits shelves. But, on Wednesday, GQ released excerpts of the excerpt that include description of Joe Paterno weeping after he was fired.

“My name,” he told Jay, “I have spent my whole life trying to make that name mean something. And now it’s gone.”
