Penn State football coach Joe Paterno "in no way or shape or form ever suspected that Jerry Sandusky was a child predator," his son Jay Paterno said Thursday in an interview with CBS News.

The elder Paterno died this year shortly after allegations came to light that Sandusky, an assistant coach, had sexually abused dozens of young boys and that Penn State officials had concealed the allegations.

Speaking to Evening News anchor Scott Pelley, Jay Paterno noted that his father said late in life that -- with the benefit of hindsight -- he wished he had done more, but that he did not know what Sandusky had done and did not interfere with any investigations.
