    He began as an assistant at Penn Sate in 1950 under Rip Engle. He had been offered head coaching jobs throughout the NCAA and NFL, yet has never worked anywhere but Happy Valley.

    When Paterno graduated from Brown, his coach (Rip Engle) got the head coaching job at Penn State and was given the opporutnity to bring one assistant. He asked Paterno, who was his starting QB, to be his defensive assistant. Paterno wanted to go to law school, but needed the money so he took the job. The rest, as they say, is history.

    No. He's coached at PSU since 1950, first as an assistant coach and then as head coach (since 1966).

    He coached Noah while he was building the Ark. I also heard he coached moses across the red sea.

    Rumor also has it Joe Pa coached God while he was making the universe. But thats just rumor.
