Joe Moorhead To Be Inducted Into Fordham Athletic Hall Of Fame

Penn State’s new Offensive Coordinator hasn’t seen his offense play one regular season snap in Happy Valley, but he continues to add to his already impressive resume. Fordham University, Moorhead’s alma mater and previous employer, announced yesterday that the coach will join the school’s Athletic Hall Of Fame as a member of the class of 2017.

 

Moorhead graduated from Fordham in 1996, starting at quarterback for his last three years, and earning second team All-Conference honors his senior year, also serving as a team captain. Moorhead set records for single season and career passing yards and completions for the Rams as well, before a short stint playing professionally in Europe.

After numerous assistant coaching positions, Moorhead took over as Fordham’s Head Coach in 2012, taking a team that finished with one win the season before, to a six-win season, and three subsequent top 20 finishes in the FCS. If his offensive scheme works anywhere near as well in the Big Ten as it did in the FCS, Moorhead’s offense will have almost no trouble putting up far superior numbers to the Nittany Lions’ John Donovan-led offenses of 2014 and 2015, as he comes in with a fresh style of play, and a plethora of weapons at the team’s skill positions.
