Joe Paterno says he'll return for 46th season as Penn State's coach

By Cindy Boren

Retire? Joe Paterno? Why? He won't turn 84 for another few weeks.

He put any and all speculation to rest today, saying he plans to return for his 46th season as Penn State's coach next year, the final year of a three-year contract extension he signed in 2008.

"I'm looking forward to it," Paterno said at his weekly Tuesday news conference. "I think we can be a pretty good football team next year, and I'd like to be a part of it. ... It's been a good situation and I don't see any reason to leave it right now."

The Nittany Lions (7-4) have won four of their last five games and play Michigan State (No. 10 BCS, No. 11 AP) in the regular-season finale Saturday.
