Paterno has had a rough couple of months.
He was rightfully fired for his role in the Jerry Sandusky cover up, found out he had cancer, wife was kicked out of the swimming facility and now he breaks his hip again.
Joe Paterno fractured his pelvis again following a fall at his home but will not need surgery, a person close to the family told The Associated Press on Sunday.
The former Penn State football coach was expected to make a full recovery after slipping Saturday and was admitted to the hospital the next day, the person added. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.
