STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — New Penn State coach Tom Bradley says he is replacing Joe Paterno with "very mixed emotions."

The defensive coordinator was appointed interim coach by Penn State's board of trustees after it fired Paterno on Wednesday night in the wake of a child sex-abuse scandal involving former assistant Jerry Sandusky. Bradley will coach the Nittany Lions through the end of the season, starting with Saturday's home finale against Nebraska.

Bradley played for Paterno and has been on the Nittany Lions staff for 33 years. He has been considered the leading in-house candidate to replace his Hall of Fame boss.
