Kevin Sumlin: 'Coach Paterno will be missed'

Texas A&M football coach Kevin Sumlin issued the following statement about former Penn State coach Joe Paterno, who died Sunday.

"Our deepest sympathies, as well as our thoughts and prayers go out to Coach Paterno's family and the entire Penn State community. I was coaching wide receivers at Minnesota and we were Penn State's first Big Ten Conference game and out of respect for Coach Paterno, our head coach Glen Mason wore a coat and tie coaching in that game. Coach Paterno will be missed."
