Bill O'Brien finalizes first staff at Penn State

Posted by Bryan Fischer

New Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien has finalized his coaching staff for the 2012 season with the hire of Charlie Fisher as quarterbacks coach. Fisher joins the Nittany Lions after one season at Miami of Ohio as passing game coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

“With the hiring of Charlie Fisher as quarterbacks coach, we have completed the Penn State football coaching staff,” O’Brien said in a release. “This is a staff made up of men who care about the mission of Penn State University and being successful on and off the field.  It is also a staff of winners, with five staff members that have been a part of national championship teams as assistant coaches.  This is a staff that has won many games; some while being a part of the same staff, and is a staff comprised of former head coaches, coordinators and tremendous recruiting experience.”

Fisher spent nine years on the Vanderbilt staff, the last five as passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach. While with the Commodores, he was helped with the development of quarterback Jay Cutler and coached the SEC's all-time receptions leader, wide receiver Earl Bennett. Fisher also had coaching stops at N.C. State, Temple and Eastern Kentucky.

Wide receivers coach Stan Hixon, running backs coach Charles London, offensive line coach Mac McWhorter, tight ends coach John Strollo, defensive coordinator Ted Roof, secondary coach John Butler, defensive line coach Larry Johnson and linebackers coach Ron Vanderlinden round out the Nittany Lions staff.

Penn State will start spring practice on March 26. The annual Blue-White spring game will be Saturday, April 21 in Beaver Stadium.

Report: UGa's Searels headed to Austin

Posted by Tom Fornelli

The overhaul of the Texas coaching staff continues, and it looks like Mack Brown has found another new member for his Longhorns staff.  Georgia offensive line coach Stacy Searels was in Austin on Wednesday afternoon, and according to a report he'll be accepting the job of offensive line coach at Texas.
Georgia offensive line coach Stacy Searels traveled Wednesday afternoon to Austin, Texas, where a website covering University of Texas athletics, Orangebloods.com, reported Wednesday night that he accepted an offer to become the Longhorns’ offensive line coach.
Texas has not yet announced a hire.
Texas head coach Mack Brown has been seeking an offensive line coach since the December retirement of Mac McWhorter. Auburn O-line coach Jeff Grimes last week turned down the position.
Searels and Georgia have not released a comment on the story either.  Searels has been in Athens since 2007 as an offensive line coach, and has made previous stops at LSU, Cincinnati and Appalachian State.

Texas OC Greg Davis has resigned

Posted by Tom Fornelli

Last week reports started surfacing that Texas offensive coordinator Greg Davis was going to be replaced following a 5-7 season in Austin.  More reports popped up over the weekend saying the same thing, but Davis told the American-Statesman that if he had been fired or asked to resign, nobody had told him yet.

Mack Brown was out of town, and until he returned, any evaluations of Davis and the rest of the coaching staff wouldn't begin.  

Well, Mack is back, and he's cleaning house.



An official release from the school will be coming later today, but as for now, it seems that the Texas fan base has its scapegoats.
