Wasting no time: Penn State quickly hires new special teams coordinator
Penn State has filled its special teams coordinator position with lightning-quick speed. The Nittany Lions had just lost their former special teams coordinator Joe Lorig to Oregon.
Penn State has hired Stacy Collins as its new special teams coordinator. Previously Collins was coaching Boise State in the same role. Collins has spent most of his coaching career out west, it could be a transition to coaching on the east coast.
