(Centre Daily Times) Former Penn State assistant football coach Bill Kenney applied for a bunch of coaching jobs after he was not chosen to join Bill O'Brien's staff in 2012.
Jay Paterno, who didn't make it onto O'Brien's staff, applied for coaching gigs, too, but never had any luck.
The coaches claim, in a lawsuit filed Wednesday in Centre County court, their job searches were futile because of the NCAA consent decree, which said they ignored "red flags" about Jerry Sandusky. The claims were part of an amended complaint and were required for the count of intentional interference to proceed in litigation.

"These coaches are well-respected in their field and would have had numerous job opportunities had not the NCAA falsely accused them of wrongdoing," lawyer Wick Sollers said in statement.
