Video: Ex-PSU coach Sandusky: 'I shouldn't have showered with those kids'

Ex-Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky, charged with 40 counts of sexually abusing eight boys, told NBC's Bob Costas that he "horsed around with kids" and "hugged them and I have touched their legs without intent of sexual contact," but maintained in the interview Monday night on Rock Center with Brian Williams that he was innocent.

"I shouldn't have showered with those kids," he said on the NBC show. Sandusky, who at one time was heir apparent to Joe Paterno, was arrested Nov. 5. Paterno, 84, was fired from his position at the university. The video of the interview has been picked up by numerous online outlets and gotten huge online play. Video
