Texas police open inquiry into ex-Penn State coach

Penn State’s trip to the Alamo Bowl in 1999 has attracted the

interest of Texas authorities amid allegations of child sex abuse

involving a former assistant coach.

San Antonio police Sgt. Chris Benavides said Thursday his

department is ”looking into the possibility that an offense may

have happened” while the football team was in town.

Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky faces child sex abuse

charges in Pennsylvania. A grand jury report says Sandusky took one

boy he allegedly molested to the game and threatened to send him

home when the victim resisted his advances.

The Alamo Bowl was Sandusky’s last game at Penn State, where he

coached for more than 30 years and was once the heir apparent to

Joe Paterno. Paterno was fired for failing to do more about an

abuse report involving Sandusky.
