UNIVERSITY PARK — A wall once dedicated to famed football Coach Joe Paterno is now a pile of rubble. 

On Tuesday, construction workers tore down the wall at Penn State’s football stadium.

Two days ago, crews removed another monument to the legendary coach — a 900-pound bronze statue of him that stood in front of the wall.

The demolitions come after a recent report revealed several top university officials, including Paterno, covered up former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky’s sexual abuse of young boys. 

Monday, the National Collegiate Athletic Association imposed a slew of penalties, including a $60 million fine, on Penn State.

The library at Penn State also bears Paterno’s name. The university president says that honor will remain.
