UPDATE: Hundreds of Penn State students protest Joe Paterno firing

STATE COLLEGE, Pa (Reuters) - Hundreds of emotional, chanting Penn State students converged on the university administration building on Wednesday to protest the firing of head football coach Joe Paterno, a Reuters witness said. Chanting "Hell no, Joe won't go" and "We want Joe back," they cursed former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, who was charged on Saturday with sexually abusing eight young boys over a period of nearly 15 years. The students also shouted criticisms of the news media. The atmosphere was tense but there were no immediate reports of violence.
