Current and Former Penn State Football Players Throw Support Behind Larry Johnson

Earlier today, it was officially announced that defensive line coach Larry Johnson would fill in as Penn State’s interim head coach while the university looks for its replacement for Bill O’Brien.

Predictably, Johnson — who has been at the school since 1996 and has established himself as one of the premier position coaches in the country — has received almost unanimous support from his current and former players, who have taken to Twitter because they believe that his interim title should be removed and that Johnson should become the school’s next head coach.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It has been reported that Johnson will interview with the head coaching job, but based on current speculation, it’s unlikely that he gets it. However, I think we can all agree that even if he isn’t named head coach, all of us want him to stay in Happy Valley in one role or another.
