Penn State students riot as university fire Coach Paterno AND force president to quit amid sex scandal - 10th Nov 2011

A riot involving thousands of Penn State football fans erupted last night at the announcement their long-term head coach Joe Paterno would be sacked with 'immediate effect' for his role in the sex scandal which has rocked the university.
