Penn State has found its next tight ends coach following Tyler Bowen’s departure to the NFL.

On Friday, Penn State announced that Ty Howle will take over as the coach of the position group moving forward. He served as an offensive analyst for the Nittany Lions in 2020.

“We are excited to have Ty represent his alma mater and serve as our tight ends coach,” said James Franklin via the school’s release. “I have known Ty since I first started at Penn State when he worked with our recruiting department. Since then, I followed his career and watched him grow into an impressive coach and tremendous leader of young men. As the son of a high school football coach, Ty’s passion for teaching the game is unmatched. In addition, he wears his pride for this University on his chest each day. His contributions as a member of the 2012 team and as a captain in 2013 will long be remembered by Penn State fans. He was a great addition to our staff as an offensive analyst and I look forward to watching him thrive in this new role.”

In addition to Howle’s new gig, Penn State also announced added titles to two assistants. Terry Smith, who has been at Penn State and coaching DBs since 2014, has now been elevated to Associate Head Coach. He also serves as the Defensive Recruiting Coordinator.

Taylor Stubblefield, who was added to the staff to coach WRs in 2020, has also added the role of Offensive Recruiting Coordinator for the Nittany Lions moving forward. Bowen had served in that capacity since 2018 while coaching the TEs in Happy Valley.
