    State College, Pennsylvania (CNN) -- Coach Joe Paterno and the president of the school have lost their jobs, effective immediately, over a child sex abuse scandal at Penn State, university trustees announced Wednesday night.

    John P. Surma, vice chairman of trustees, said that President Graham Spanier was being replaced and Paterno, the longtime head football coach, would not finish the remainder of the season.

    Nittany Lions defensive coordinater Tom Bradley will serve as interim head coach. Rod Erickson, executive vice president and provost of the school, will be interim president, school officials said.

    Stunned Penn State students congregated after the announcement.

    Spanier has been president of the school since 1995.

    Paterno was given the news of the unanimous decision early Wednesday evening in a telephone call made by chairman of the board Steve Garban and Surma. Asked Paterno's reaction, Surma said, "That's a private discussion that I would rather not characterize."

    ::

    CNN and MSNBC are both reporting that students are gathering on campus in support of Paterno and police in riot gear are showing up just in case. I don't understand the support for Paterno. They should be calling for his firing.

    I've heard reports that several people witnessed the alleged molestations over the years but never went to police.

    SEC has taken the lead in the BCS. Experts say that LSU, Alabama and Arkansas will be Top 3 with at least one team playing in the title game but Georgia may have a huge say in SEC Championship Game.

    Awww yeahhhhh! Never would have seen this season coming after our loss to Boise St at the beginning. That being said, yesterday's game was an offensive nightmare. We'd be a minor speed bump for LSU playing like that.

    Great day for the Pac-12, including an upset by my Cats. Bear Down, Arizona!

    Yes, the Pac-12 did great yesterday, including UCLA taking down #16 Nebraska, 36-30 in a great game, have to say I didn't see that one coming!! Also, kudos to Oregon State upsetting #13 Wisconsin 10-7. Didn't see that one coming either and finally a huge non Pac-12 related upset as Louisiana-Monroe shocked #8 Arkansas 34-31 in OT, wow.....gonna be a wild and crazy season in college football. Gotta love it.....

    I went to Oregon State-Wisconsin. It was a fun game, even though there wasn't a ton of action. To be honest though, I doubt either team is going to be that good.

    Down goes 'Bama!

    Notre Dame 2 games and a half plus a K-State or Oregon loss from a championship game possibly?

    With the luck of Notre Dame, Kansas St or Oregon will slip somewhere.

    To be honest, I don't see K-State slipping up. They're too solid on both sides of the ball. Oregon, on the other hand, has a tough date right here in Corvallis in two weeks. I wouldn't say it's too unlikely they lose here.

    I wonder what kind of ratings the National Championship game will get, if it actually turns out to be Oregon vs Kansas State, vying for the title.

    Us true football fans realize what a great match it would be...but maybe not others.

    If they want ratings they are hoping for ND to make it. I am as well for other reasons of course.

    Damn, the SEC will miss the national title. Not that I really care because UGA is headed to the SEC championship game and I think I'd rather face Texas A&M than Bama.
