STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Joe Paterno's contract talks with Penn State were put on hold until the end of the season.
The 81-year-old Paterno's deal expires after the 2008 campaign. Penn State president Graham Spanier told The Associated Press in an e-mail Thursday that administrators and Paterno agreed that a new contract isn't necessary at this point given Paterno's seniority.
Paterno is entering his 43rd season as Penn State head coach.
Spanier says both sides prefer to review the program each year, with the next review after the 2008 season.
Two weeks ago, Paterno said he wasn't worried about the situation. He says he would be comfortable going year-to-year.
