Keegan-Michael Key will be in attendance for the Penn State football program’s Spring Game. Not only will the comedian be making an appearance in State College, the man who pulls off an amazing impersonation of Nittany Lions head coach James Franklin will be serving as a guest coach during the game. Penn State announced the news with a post on Facebook.
“My man (Keegan-Michael Key), appreciate you coming to support the team and our Happy Valley community,” Franklin tweeted out.

We’ll have to see if Key does as good of a job on the sidelines as he does when he emulates Franklin’s mannerisms for the camera.
Penn State’s Blue-White game will be broadcast live from Beaver Stadium on the Big Ten Network. Kickoff is set for 3:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, April 21. Be sure to tune in to get an early look at the Nittany Lions’ post-Saquon Barkley era.
