Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky talks to NBC's Bob Costas

November 14, 2011 |  6:28 pm

NBC's Bob Costas has landed the first interview with former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky, who admitted to showering and horsing around with young boys but insisted he is not a pedophile.

The interview will air tonight on "Rock Center With Brian Willaims."

"I say I am innocent of those charges," Sandusky said when Costas questioned him about a 40-count indictment that contains specific details about his alleged abuse.

Costas said, "Innocent? Completely innocent and falsely accused in every aspect?"

Responded Sandusky: "Well, I could say that, you know. I have done some of those things. I have horsed around with kids. I have showered after workouts. I have hugged them, and I have touched their leg. Without intent of sexual contact."
