Franco Harris Fired By Casino

Franco Harris Fired By Casino, Slowly but surely, people will begin to get the hint. Defending someone at Penn State or anyone with a connection to the Penn State scandal is not going to get you anywhere. In fact, you could lose your job over it. Just ask former Penn State linebacker Franco Harris, who was fired from his job as spokesman for The Meadows Race Track and Casino in Pennsylvania after he went to bat for Joe Paterno.

“I feel that the board made a bad decision in letting Joe Paterno go,” the Hall of Famer said last week according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I’m very disappointed in their decision. I thought they showed no courage, not to back someone who really needed it at the time. They were saying the football program under Joe was at fault.

“They really wouldn’t give a reason. They’re linking the football program to the scandal and, possibly, the cover up. That’s very disturbing to me. … I think there should be no connection to the football program, only in the case that it happened at the football building with an ex-coach. I’m still trying to find out who gave him access to the building, who signed that contract.”
