 SAN ANTONIO (AP) -Head coach Jay Paterno?
His boss and father, Penn State coach Joe Paterno, said Sunday that his son, who is currently quarterbacks coach, has the ability to be a head coach, but ``I don't think Penn State would be a good place for him right now.''
Joe Paterno's comments came after a reporter asked whether it might help Jay's career to leave Happy Valley.
``That's up to Jay. I've tried to be a father off the field, but I try to treat him as an assistant coach if I don't like something out there,'' Joe Paterno said.
Jay Paterno just finished his 13th season on the Nittany Lions staff and his eighth coaching quarterbacks. He helps call passing plays with offensive coordinator Galen Hall.
Given his last name, Jay Paterno has been rumored at times as a potential successor for his 81-year-old father, who just finished his 42nd season as head coach. JoePa has one year left on his contract, though he has said he could coach a couple more seasons and perhaps as many five.
But Joe Paterno said it would be tough for his son to take over, in part because ``it would be as if I programmed the whole thing.''
Jay Paterno has also drawn criticism from some fans for play-calling and his coaching of quarterbacks.
