Paterno was born in Brooklyn, New York. Where he played football both ways as the quarterback. He had originally planned on going to law school, but he was instead hired in 1950 as an assistant football coach at Penn State.
He was persuaded to do this by his college coach Rip Engle. Who had taken over as Penn State's head coach.
In 1966, Paterno was named as Engle's successor. He soon coached the team to two undefeated regular seasons in 1968. The team won two national championshipsin 1982.Paterno coached five undefeated teams that won major bowl games, and in 2007 he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. During his career, he led the Nittany Lions to 37 bowl appearances with 24 wins while turning down offers to coach National Football League. (NFL) teams that included the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Broke in full in November 2011, Paterno announced that he would retire at the end of the season. However, on November 9, the Penn State Board of Trustees. Rejected his decision and immediately terminated his contract via a telephone call.
