Greg Schiano responds to deposition claiming he witnessed Sandusky's abuse
Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano is in a battle of he-said, she-said.
On Tuesday, newly unsealed court documents released a deposition from former Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary. In it, McQueary claimed that Schiano witnessed Jerry Sandusky sexually assault a boy in the shower when he was an assistant at Penn State.
In response, Schiano had this to say:
In response to deposition, Greg Schiano said: “I never saw any abuse, nor had reason to suspect any abuse, during my time at Penn State.”

McQueary’s deposition also claimed that former Penn State defensive coordinator and current UCLA defensive coordinator Tom Bradley knew about Sandusky’s abuse as early as the 1980s. He and Schiano both allegedly had knowledge of Sandusky’s abuse, but did not take proper legal action.
McQueary’s 2014 statement came under oath as part of an ongoing insurance case involving Penn State and the $93 million in compensation paid to Sandusky’s victims.
Schiano coached at Penn State from 1990-95, where he served as a graduate assistant and later a defensive backs coach.
Ohio State has yet to release a comment on the allegations surrounding their newly hired defensive coordinator.
