NORTH AUGUSTA, SC — Several NCAA Basketball Coaches give their thoughts on the Penn State scandal involving Jerry Sandusky and Joe Paterno.

Brad Brownell, Clemson Basketball Head Coach – “Obviously it’s an extremely, unfortunate incident. It’s tragic.”

Tubby Smith, Minnesota Basketball Head Coach – “You know, you think about a lot of the victims and the people who have to go through that. It’s something that no one ever wants to experience.”

Brian Gregory, Georgia Tech Basketball Head Coach – “It’s such a misfortunate tragedy and opportunities to change it or stop it, you know obviously were not made.”

These big name NCAA Basketball Coaches are in town this week for the Nike Peach Jam.

They spent Tuesday afternoon at the River Golf Club in North Augusta playing golf at an event hosted by a ministry called Nations Of Coaches.

The ministry’s vision is to equip coaches to leave a legacy of excellence — and they use the words of the Reverend Billy Graham, who said, one coach will impact more young people in a year than the average person does in a lifetime.

Brian Gregory says, “well when you look at it we have an opportunity, and in a lot of ways, an obligation in the coaching profession to go out there and impact people’s lives, and hopefully change them for the better.

In the wake of a report that says Joe Paterno and other Penn State Officials buried child sexual abuse allegations against Jerry Sandusky, Clemson Coach Brad Brownell and Georgia Tech Coach Brian Gregory say their schools are using Penn State’s mistakes as a lesson.

Brad Brownell says, all the schools I think are trying to learn from it. I know that even at our school we’ve had to re-evaluate how we do some things with camp. And our school has done a really good job with trying to use this as a teaching opportunity and I’m sure a lot of other schools around the country are doing it as well.

Brian Gregory says, “well, I think there’s a greater awareness. A heightened sensitivity to things. Background checks for camp coaches. All these different things that maybe were taken for granted. And when you look at, unfortunately, the day and age that we live in, you can’t take those things for granted anymore.
