A consent decree between the NCAA and Penn State has been invalidated, according to the report.
"A settlement in Pennsylvania Senate majority leader Jake Corman's suit against the NCAA was reached Friday, and as a result, Paterno will once again be the winningest coach in major college football history with 409 victories," the article said.
Paterno's 111 wins were stricken from the record books as a result of penalties issued relating to the Penn State child sex abuse scandal that broke in November 2011 involving former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky. Paterno, along with former president Graham Spanier, former athletic director Tim Curley, and former vice president Gary Schultz, were allegedly involved in a cover up of Sandusky's heinous acts.
What will happen next? Will the Paterno statue return to the outskirts of Beaver Stadium?
