Penn State assistant coach Mike McQueary will not be on the sidelines for Saturday's game against Nebraska, Penn State athletics announced.
"Due to multiple threats made against Assistant Coach Mike McQueary, the University has decided it would be in the best interest of all for Assistant Coach McQueary not to be in attendance at Saturday's Nebraska game," the statement read.
McQueary is in his eighth season on staff and serves as the Nittany Lions' wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator.
On Tuesday, Tom Farrell, attorney of Penn State senior vice president for business and finance Gary Schultz, named "McQueary" as the graduate assistant who -- according to a grand jury's findings -- witnessed former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky performing sexual acts on a young boy in an on-campus shower in 2002.
McQueary served as a graduate assistant from 2000-02, moved to administrative assistant in 2003 and has since been the wide receivers coach and recruiting coordinator.
Along with offensive coordinator Galen Hall and quarterbacks coach Jay Paterno, McQueary assists in some of the play calling, former head coach Joe Paterno has said.
