Penn State hiring former Purdue great to coach wide receivers
One of the best Purdue receivers in program history is making a return to the B1G.
Sunday, Penn State announced that former Boilermaker Taylor Stubblefield is headed to State College to coach the Nittany Lions wide receivers. He will replace Gerad Parker, who was previously the interim head coach at Purdue on Darrell Hazell’s staff.
“We are excited to have Taylor, Georgia and Jagger join our Penn State family,” James Franklin said in a statement. “Taylor has a strong familiarity with the Big Ten Conference. He was an elite wide receiver as an All-American at Purdue, setting NCAA, Big Ten and school receiving records, some of which he still holds today. He will bring his passion and knowledge to our young wide receiver room. Taylor has a wide range of experiences as a coach, both at the college and professional levels. Taylor really separated himself during the interview process and we are thrilled about the future of our wide receivers under his guidance.”

Stubblefield comes to Penn State after spending one season as the wide receivers coach at Miami. He’s also had stops at Air Force, Utah, Wake Forest, New Mexico and Central Michigan at the FBS level, coaching the wide receivers at each school.
Stubblefield was a former All-American at Purdue, playing from 2001-04. He played in 47 career games at Purdue, totaling 3,629 receiving yards and 21 touchdown catches on 325 receptions.
