Penn State hires Joe Moorhead as Offensive Coordinator

It looks like Franklin is going in a much different direction on offense with Moorhead:

Statistically, his teams at Fordham finished in the FCS national top 20 in most important offensive categories with the exception of rushing offense. Fordham was 19th in total offense (453 yards per game) in 2015, ninth in scoring offense (37 points per game), 20th in pass offense and 42nd in rushing.

In 2014, Fordham was seventh in total offense, 15th in scoring, third in passing and 70th in rushing.

In Moorhead's two seasons at UConn, he installed an up-tempo, mostly no-huddle attack, largely from spread formations, at a program known for running the ball out of pro-style formations. The Huskies finished second in the Big East in scoring offense both years with a fairly even run-pass mix. In 2010, they won the conference title and played in the Fiesta Bowl.

It's official.  Ted Roof coming back to Big Ten as DC for the Nittany Lions.

Roof was DC at Minnesota in 2008 - the last year they hit a bowl game, finishing 7-6.

You will remember Roof's defense when Rich Rodriguez and walk-on QB Nick Sheridan shredded the Gophers 29-6 in the anti-septic Metrodome.
