04:51 AM ET 04.22 | Segments of fans and alumni are pushing for change, and the once-untouchable Joe Paterno is facing a somewhat unclear future as the Nittany Lions' coach. If Paterno is going to continue coaching beyond the coming season, his marriage to the university will be consummated with a handshake. If not, Spanier and Athletic Director Tim Curley may be faced with the unenviable task of asking the iconic Paterno to step down. Other teams have used Paterno's age and unknown future to recruit against the Lions, Tom Lemming, the CSTV recruiting analyst, said. For Paterno, retirement has long been a sensitive topic. He is wont to point out that he does not fish. He does not golf. Football is his hobby.
