Big 12 coaches react to Penn State sanctions

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS, TX (KLTV) -

In the wake of the heavy sanctions given to the Penn State football program, Big 12 coaches were reluctant to weigh in on Monday.  While many coaches chose not to address the biggest story in college football, Texas Tech's Tommy Tuberville sent out his sympathy to the victims.

"The big thing is that the victims are taken care of and we make sure that this doesn't happen again in sports in college," said Tuberville.  "Because we deal with young people. A lot of innocent people will pay the price, but that's part of it. I just can't imagine what's going on."

TCU head coach Gary Patterson says kids are his life.

"I've been in this business for 30 years because of kids," said Patterson.  "And now we've got to keep moving forward and find the positives. It's not just a Penn State problem. It's a world problem and we all need to take notice."
