Nike just dissed Joe Paterno big time or Joe Paterno dissed Nike. In any case, the company is cutting its last remaining ties with the former Penn State football coach by removing his name from the child care building on the corporation’s campus. Nike’s move comes hours after independent investigators revealed Paterno helped cover-up facts about the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal.
Nike President Mark Parker said in a statement, “With the findings released today, I have decided to change the name of our child care center at our World Headquarters.” Nike founder Phil Knight added, “It appears Joe made missteps that led to heartbreaking consequences.” PSU sports teams have been outfitted by Nike since 1996.
