Family of Joe Paterno rejected Penn State Nittany Lions stadium naming deal, report says – ESPN

Penn State officials, in an attempt to get the family of Joe Paterno to sign away its right to sue the school, offered to rename Beaver Stadium after the late coach, The Patriot-News has reported, citing a source close to the family.

But the family said no.

Paterno had never been keen on the stadium bearing his name, an idea that “has always been a fan-driven matter. It was never important to Joe,” the source told the Harrisburg, Pa., newspaper.
