Penn State defensive line coach Sean Spencer is reportedly leaving State College to take a job in the NFL, according to a report.
247Sports is reporting that Spencer has accepted a position with the New York Giants, though it was not mentioned what role he would fill. Spencer has spent the last six seasons at Penn State and has been on James Franklin’s staff since the days at Vanderbilt.
In total, Spencer was with Franklin for nine seasons.
This would be Spencer’s first leap into the NFL. Before joining Franklin at Vanderbilt in 2011, the defensive line coach also had stops at UMass, Holy Cross, Villanova, Hofstra and Bowling Green.
Penn State finished the 2019 season with an 11-2 record, which included a victory over Memphis in the Cotton Bowl. The Nittany Lions have undergone some changes already on the staff, most notably as offensive coordinator Ricky Rahne was named the head coach at Old Dominion and ex-Minneosta OC Kirk Ciarrocca was hired.
