PENN STATE officially announced six members of Bill O'Brien's football coaching staff, although the names have been leaking out all week.
The school already had announced that Larry Johnson would return as defensive line coach. Additionally, Penn State said Ron Vanderlinden would remain as linebackers coach; Stan Hixon had been named assistant head coach and wide receivers coach; and Charles London (running backs), Mac McWhorter (offensive line) and John Strollo (tight ends) would be joining the staff.
"I said last weekend we were going to put together the best staff for Penn State and I firmly believe we have done that," O'Brien said in a statement. "It was crucial to get an experienced, passionate and enthusiastic staff together quickly so they can hit the ground running. All of these coaches have varied and successful backgrounds coaching in the NFL, college and high school across the country."
