Former Penn State Assistant Coach, Jerry Sandusky, who is accused of abusing several children while working under ousted coach/legend, Joe Paterno, has finally broken his silence. The former coach was on MSNBC and spoke directly to Bob Costas. In the interview he says that while he have may acted inappropriately with children, he claims to NOT be a pedophile.

Sandusky talked to Bob Costas, which aired Monday night on NBC's "Rock Center" and admitted ... "I have horsed around with kids. I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact."

Since this story has broke, several top officials at the university and several top ranking coaches have been dismissed from their duties. While the evidence continues to mount up against Sandusky, the Penn State football program and university have gone into "damage control mode." Hear what the former coach had to say while on MSNBC.
