Mississippi State is Considering Penn State's Joe Moorhead for Head Coaching Vacancy

Penn State football is reportedly just days away from a coaching search to replace offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead as he takes the head coaching job at Mississippi State.

Moorhead has been a revelation for the Penn State offense. Joe's combination of leadership, X's and O's, and, most importantly, positive attitude brought the best out of our very talented offensive student-athletes. Barkley said the Bulldogs "got a great one" and wished Moorhead "nothing but success". Penn State players from wide receiver Juwan Johnson to linebacker Jason Cabinda tweeted out their support, thanking the now-former coordinator for the past couple seasons. Moorhead's introductory press conference will be held at 10 a.m. Thursday.

The fourth-year leader of the Lions shared his thoughts on Moorhead's departure for a news release announcing the hire, which is a common occurrence in coaching circles; many past colleagues chimed in with their thoughts when PSU hired Moorhead, for example. While the program doesn't know what bowl it is yet, they do know one thing. "I look forward to getting to know the young men on our team, hiring a staff and hitting the recruiting trail quickly".




Mississippi State has definitely worked its way into a bowl game with an 8-4 record.

The players who reacted, including star running back Saquon Barkley, were supportive of Moorhead's decision to leave and become a head coach in the SEC. Trace McSorley averaged nearly 305 yards of total offense, good for 14 in the nation. In the two years before Moorhead arrived in Happy Valley, Penn State's average rank was No. 99 nationally in yards per play.
