In an exclusive interview airing Monday on TODAY, former Penn State football coach Jerry Sandusky will speak out for the first time since he went to prison.

It's been 9 months since Sandusky was found guilty on 45 of 48 counts of child sex abuse. The former longtime defensive coordinator will describe what he says happened on the campus, and what he thinks of whistleblower Mike McQueary and late head coach Joe Paterno.

Sandusky spoke with Bob Costas in phone interview on Rock Center in November 2011, declaring he was innocent of all charges. When asked by Costas, "Are you a pedophile," Sandusky responded, "No." When asked if he had a sexual attraction to underage boys, Sandusky said, "I enjoy young people. I love to be around them, but no, I'm not sexually attracted to young boys."
