Former Florida football coach Galen Hall will join the Penn State coaching staff as a graduate assistant, head coach Joe Paterno announced yesterday. "I have known Galen since I first recruited him in 1958," Paterno said. "He made some mistakes at Florida, but I believe he has been penalized sufficiently and deserves a chance to regroup and get on with his life. As his former coach and close friend, I'm happy and pleased his alma mater can help him. " Hall, who played quarterback for the Nittany Lions from 1959 to 1961, resigned last year from Florida after admitting to providing a player with transportation home to handle a personal emergency and to supplementing the income of some assistant coaches with personal funds in violation of NCAA rules.

If Ian Coffey ever decides to give a pep talk on persistence, his swimmers should immediately remove any water from their ears, grab a starting block, and listen. Coffey, a 1995 graduate of La Salle High and the Mount St. Joseph Academy swim coach from 1996 to 2000, is now a first-year graduate assistant at Virginia Tech. Since he graduated from La Salle University in December 1999, Coffey, 23, has been combing the country, looking for any college with a pool and a coaching position.

Penn State defensive tackle Evan Haithes' playing career is over because of complications for blood clots, coach Bill O'Brien told reporters Tuesday in Washington. Haithes, a sophomore, will remain on scholarship as a graduate assistant. The clots developed in his legs during 6-hour drives home to Virginia early last year for his grandfather's funeral. The clots spread to his lungs and he was hospitalized in March 2011 with a life-threatening situation. He played only two games for the Nittany Lions last fall.

In 2002, when Mike Pettine Jr. opted to step down as head coach at North Penn High School in Lansdale to become a video assistant for the Baltimore Ravens, there were never any promises made to him about moving up the professional coaching ladder. Former Eagles quarterback Matt Cavanaugh, with whom Pettine had worked as a graduate assistant at the University of Pittsburgh in the early 1990s, paved the way for the job in Baltimore. The rest was up to the man who had already stepped out from the large shadow cast by his coaching legend of a father.

WHEN BRUCE PEARL was at La Salle five summers ago preparing his Maccabi USA team for what would become a gold-medal effort in Israel, Harris Adler was right by his side as a trusted assistant. So, it was no shock when it was announced yesterday that Adler, who has been with John Giannini as an assistant for his entire decadelong tenure as an aide, was named to fill out Pearl's new staff at Auburn. "Harris and I have won gold together," Pearl said in a statement. "I believe he has an eye for talent . . .

Adam DiMichele does not remember being too demanding of his receivers when he was a quarterback at Temple. As of Thursday, though, that is part of his job description. Temple named DiMichele wide receivers coach, replacing Terry Smith, who joined the staff at Penn State. DiMichele is the first former Temple football player to coach at the school in more than 30 years. DiMichele, 28, played for the Owls from 2006 to 2008. He was a two-time MVP and is fourth in school history with more than 5,000 passing yards.

Penn State coach Bill O'Brien has a penetrating stare, a scowl always at the ready and language that prompted him to shoo away cameras filming ESPN's "all-access" special in the preseason. But that's not the O'Brien that Stan Hixon, the wide receivers coach of the Nittany Lions, remembers when he first met O'Brien, then a graduate assistant at Georgia Tech, in the mid 1990s. "He was a comedian," Hixon said Thursday on a conference call. "He's the only guy that I know as a coach that could make money as a comedian.

It will be a little odd for Bill O'Brien on Saturday night when he paces the sideline at Beaver Stadium as a head coach going against his mentor and former boss, Central Florida head coach George O'Leary, for the first time. O'Brien got his first full-time assistant coaching job from O'Leary at Georgia Tech, where he served as a graduate assistant for three seasons before being named running backs coach in 1998. Even though he only worked with O'Leary until 2001, he learned lessons that he still follows today.

HARRISBURG - As the clock ran down on his coaching career, Joe Paterno offered a damning assessment of Pennsylvania State University's top administrators and how they dealt with reports of Jerry Sandusky's abusing children, according to former assistant football coach Mike McQueary. "He said Old Main screwed it up," McQueary testified in Dauphin County Court on Monday, using the name of Penn State's administration building to denote those who worked in it. Then, just before he was fired - his reputation in shambles as a result of the Sandusky scandal - Paterno offered a warning, McQueary testified: The administrators could not be trusted, and would "try to scapegoat" the young assistant coach, who had told him and other top officials in 2001 that he saw Sandusky sexually assault a boy in a campus shower.

JACOB IATI was not playing much last season. His prospects for playing did not look promising. He was ready to graduate, go for his MBA and get on with his life.

"I wasn't playing a lot," Iati said Thursday morning at the Wells Fargo Center. "They offered me to be the GA this year which would pay for graduate school.

The Eagles announced Chip Kelly's coaching staff Friday, all at once, as they'd said they would do. Twenty-one names are on the list, including that of Shaun Huls, the "sports science coordinator," which sounds a little BALCOesque, but Huls' bio says he comes to the Eagles from a position as strength and conditioning and combatives coordinator for Navy Special Warfare. So, if hand-to-hand fighting breaks out in the middle of the third quarter, the Eagles presumably will be covered. Five members of the new staff are following Kelly from the University of Oregon.

Pennsylvania State University denied defamation and wrongful-termination claims Tuesday that were lodged by a former assistant football coach who testified against Jerry Sandusky. In filings in Centre County Court, the university asked a judge to throw out a state whistle-blower lawsuit brought by Mike McQueary, arguing that any damage he endured as a result of his role as a prosecution witness was not caused by Penn State. So far, McQueary has failed to provide any evidence suggesting that Penn State officials publicly questioned his character, university counsel Nancy Conrad wrote.
