Genuine answer? Some very young guy with nothing to lose and a chance to make a name for himself if he keeps them relevant during their nuke years. Well, that or an old coach (possibly an alum) with absolutely nothing to lose and not looking to gain anything. I say this because no coach in their right mind and in the "make or break" prime of coaching career takes that job. It will be a relative no name with nothing to lose if they only win a couple games a year for half a decade+. So, to name a single guy would be tough as SO MANY fit said criteria. That said, I don't think BO'B (lol) leaves. I think he'll stick around and wants to be a long term guy there. If he can steer them through the wasteland they are in with the kind of seasons he had this year (or better) he will be beloved at PSU. He'd never have a hot seat, IMO. We cannot underestimate the hole they are in and how much deeper it is about to become. If he keeps them relevant he is a lifer and will be treated and paid as a top tier coach.
Speculate who could be Penn St's next coach if O'Brien is lured away
You spelled Holthz wrong.
Just look at how well he managed the sideline today
O-coordinator could be troy smith.
Coach Maurice clarett
She would have the best recruiting pitch
Or are you just saying that?
I love desk.
Rich Rod, he can pick up a field goal kicker on the way !
Pulls another shocker...
A little voodoo and voila! Hey, he was a figurehead by the end anyway...
I'll go ask him, he lives a couple condos down from me.
Simpson, I mean McDuffie
This could actually happen In my honest opinion. If they're willing to pay up enough.
John madden just had a heart attack
Mike Ditka, you're welcome.
I'd try to lure Coach Nickerson back from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.
A great fit for Penn State would be K.C. Keeler, coach of the University of Delaware.
Keeler has already recruited the same surrounding areas Penn State targets, is a proven winner at the FCS level, and is from Pennsylvania originally.
The Kiffin family.
Pee Wee Herman.
Wayne. Wayne Fontes.
you people are just being silly now, I refuse to comment or make any silly suggestions until you people start taking these posts seriously. But for now, may I recommend someone of high integrity/esteem with real coaching prowess, so with no further delay may I suggest Martha Stewart, she could really cook up somethin good.
