HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Penn State's former president told investigators that he knew better than to jump to conclusions that Jerry Sandusky's "horsing around" in a university shower naked with a boy could have been sexual in nature.

Graham Spanier made the comment during April 2011 grand jury testimony that was read aloud for the first time in a Harrisburg courtroom Tuesday.

The hearing for Spanier and two other former university officials is to decide whether there's enough evidence to warrant a trial on the charges against them in the child-sex abuse scandal.

Prosecutors say the defendants failed to tell police about a sex-abuse allegation against Sandusky in 2001. But the defendants say they weren't told that Sandusky was molesting the boy.

Police also investigated complaints about Sandusky showering with boys in 1998, but Spanier says he knew nothing about that.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky said in interview on NBC's "Today" show that a key witness against him misinterpreted him showering with a young boy in Penn State football team facilities more than a decade ago. Sandusky told documentary filmmaker John Ziegler, in recordings played on the NBC program, that he does not understand how Mike McQueary concluded "that sex was going on" when he witnessed Sandusky showering with a boy in 2001.

Sandusky also told Ziegler he was not sure whether head coach Joe Paterno would have let him keep coaching if he suspected Sandusky was a pedophile. Sandusky was investigated by university police for a separate shower incident in 1998, but remained one of Paterno's top assistants through 1999.
