NEW YORK - (AP) - A former Penn State football assistant coach hasdenied abuse allegations and says he is not sexually attracted toyoung boys.

Jerry Sandusky said on NBC News' "Rock Center" Monday nightthat there was no abuse and that any activities in a campus showerwith a boy were just horseplay, not molestation. Asked if he haddone anything wrong, he said "I shouldn't have showered with thosekids."

Sandusky, once considered veteran coach Joe Paterno's heirapparent, is charged with having sexually abused eight boys, someon Penn State property, over a 15-year span. The New York Timesreports that allegations involving close to 10 other suspectedvictims are being investigated.

Sandusky's attorney, however, says he expects some of thealleged victims to come forward and deny they were abused.
