Beaver Stadium - JoePa Statue
The Joe Paterno statue stands in front of Beaver Stadium at Penn State University. JoePa was on Penn State football's coaching staff for 61 years and holds the records for most victories for a division 1 football coach, and most bowl game wins and undefeated seasons of any coach.
Joseph Vincent Paterno died on Sunday, January 22, 2012.
Amidst a deep and troubling scandal involving former coaching staff, JoePa, and top university officials, the Joe Paterno statue and tribute was taken down on July 22, 2012. Additionally, as a result of sanctions levied against the program by the NCAA, all of his 111 wins from 1998 - 2012 were vacated, resulting in him no longer holding the record of most wins for a division 1 football coach.
