James Franklin, Penn State targeting longtime ACC assistant for WRs coach, per report
James Franklin has reportedly keyed in on one candidate for the wide receivers coach job on his Penn State staff.
Following the end of the 2022 season, Taylor Stubblefield penned a heartfelt farewell to the program. Franklin eventually confirmed Stubblefield was let go with the Nittany Lions looking to make a change.
According to college football reporter Bruce Feldman, Penn State is expected to land Marques Hagans for the WRs coach moving forward. Hagans played collegiately at Virginia and has been a part of the Cavs’ coaching staff since 2011.
