Penn State wide receivers coach Mike McQueary, who is on paid administrative leave after Penn State said he received multiple threats, will break his silence Tuesday on the "CBS Evening News" in an interview with Armen Keteyian, the network announced Tuesday via Twitter. It's scheduled to start at 6:30 p.m.

McQueary was the graduate assistant who, in 2002, allegedly witnessed former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky sexually abusing a young boy in the showers of the Lasch Football Building, according to the 23-page grand jury presentment.

McQueary has been vilified by many for reportedly not doing more than simply alerting then-head coach Joe Paterno. However, in an email to a former classmate obtained by the Allentown Morning Call, McQueary said he did indeed stop the alleged assault and alerted the police. 

"I did stop it, not physically, but made sure it was stopped when I left that locker room," McQueary wrote in the email, according to the Morning Call.
