LaVar Arrington, former Penn State All-American, slammed his alma mater earlier today on Twitter for the hiring of Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien to be the Nittany Lions new head coach.
“PSU is hiding something there’s way more going on there! By the board doing what they’ve done they have in their minds effectively made Joe Paterno and the football team a scapegoat. When in fact they are the very people that should’ve been fired due to the lack of action! Alums I will always love you and the Penn State I knew But until there’s a new board and new leadership they can have their corrupt/disgusting school that they’ve created. I’m done. All my PSU stuff will be down before O’Brien’s introduction! We are! No more for me!”
Today on his radio show, “The LaVar Arrington Show with Chad Dukes,” Dukes asked Arrington if he stood by his comments. “I was upset”, Arrington said, “I don’t stand by the ‘We are, no more.’ The worst thing for me, the school that I know and love, and have always defended…where it comes down to this is the end. I apologize. That’s a sincere and from my heart apology to the whole community…but as far as the other things I wrote, I stand by it. I stand by it.”
Speaking about the board of trustees, LaVar said on the show today “you go and you hire someone, without consulting anyone outside the small circle you’ve created…who knows nothing about Penn State. It comes across to me, as you have done everything in this situation to make us look like the whole program is guilty…This is what I’m upset about.”
