Not having to face Sandusky's victims and explain why he didn't prosecute sounds better. Not having to face his daughter to explain his cowardice sounds better. Not wanting to deal with the wrath of the Penn State football fanatics sounds better. Those are just some the options. I could think of others.
And, by the way, if there was/is "another woman", it wouldn't automatically mean the above possibilities are incorrect. Fleeing with another person and starting a new life together, with brand new identities, is much more attractive when possible scandal is hanging over one's head.
I've I thought that motive for walkaway would not necessarily be limited to one thing. It could add to it, but not by much.
RFG would only deal with the football fan(atics) if he did prosecute Sandusky. McQueary didn't face the victims.
Lauro? He is retired from DPW, still getting a pension, and now working in the private sector in the same field. Raykovitz, the president of TSM? Private practice in a group, in State College. Jay Paterno, heir to Joe, is hawking his new book and eying a political career.
Yes, he'd have to tell his daughter. A bit embarrassing, but worse than disappearing forever?
Further, he could never know if 1998 would come out. We didn't know about it for about 6 years.
