 STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -Penn State's president and athletic director plan to meet with Joe Paterno next month, in part to talk about the 81-year-old coach's future.
Paterno typically meets with school administrators each offseason to review the previous year and look ahead to the next season.
This year's meeting is attracting extra attention because Paterno's contract expires after the 2008 season. The 42-year coaching veteran has said recently he could coach at least a couple more years, and perhaps as many as five.
Penn State president Graham Spanier, responding to a question posed Friday at a meeting of university trustees, said he was certain Paterno would return for his 43rd season this fall.
``He does have a year remaining on his contract, and we expect him to coach this fall,'' Spanier told reporters during a break in the meeting.
When asked if the topic of Paterno coaching beyond next year had come up yet, Spanier only said that he hadn't had a chance to speak to the coach yet.
Athletic director Tim Curley said they hope to sit down after the recruiting period ends early next month.
``I just don't want to say anything until I've had the opportunity to talk to him about the subject,'' Curley said. ``We've talked about some other things, but haven't had a chance to zero in on that.''
Paterno's 372 career wins are one behind Florida State's Bobby Bowden for most among major college coaches.
