Josh Gattis Named CoachingSearch’s Wide Receivers Coach Of The Week

Penn State wide receivers coach Josh Gattis was named a CoachingSearch Assistant Coach of the Week for week eight after his team’s impressive aerial performance against Maryland on Saturday.

The Penn State wide receivers coach was awarded with this honor thanks to Penn State’s 315-yard, three-touchdown performance through the air. Penn State was able to edge Maryland by playing deep ball, as four different receivers — Godwin, Hamilton, Blacknall, and Lewis — had a catch of at least 27 yards. The Nittany Lions averaged 24.7 yards per catch on 13 catches.

Penn State started off strong through the air, as the first two completions to DaeSean Hamilton and Chris Godwin went for 38 and 40 yards, respectively. Each of Hackenberg’s three touchdowns were at least 20 yards, and the 315 passing yards allowed him to become Penn State’s all-time leader in the statistic.

With Gattis at the helm of the wide receivers, Chris Godwin led Penn State with four catches for 135 yards, and a touchdown in the 31-30 win over the Terrapins. This is not Gattis’s first honor at Penn State. In February, Gattis was selected as the Big Ten Recruiter of the Year. Penn State’s receiving corps is versatile and explosive group, which gives Josh Gattis and the Nittany Lions the opportunity to terrorize opposing defenses every game.
