A child told then-Penn State coach Joe Paterno in 1976 that he was molested by Jerry Sandusky, a stunning revelation included in insurers’ litigation with the university. The order by a Philadelphia judge also cited reports by unnamed assistant coaches they witnessed inappropriate contact between Sandusky and children, Pennlive.com said.

There was also a post on Tunsil’s Instagram account – which he said was hacked – showing an alleged text conversation with an Ole Miss football staff member about arranging payment for bills.

The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner from Texas A&M was indicted last month after ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley said he hit her and threatened to kill her in January.
