Penn State fires OC John Donovan


Penn State has fired offensive coordinator and tight ends coach John Donovan, per a tweet from ESPN’s Brett McMurphy.

This isn’t at all a surprising move, as Penn State ranked 105th in FBS in total offense despite finishing 7-5 on the season. Donovan failed to further develop quarterback Christian Hackenberg into a top-of-the-line talent after arriving from Vanderbilt with coach James Franklin in 2014, and Penn State’s receivers and offensive line have been underwhelming.

That can’t be laid entirely on Donovan, but the fact remains that the Nittany Lions’ offense was inconsistent all season long and a change is needed. Just who replaces him, however, remains to be seen.
