JaJuan Seider To Join Penn State Coaching Staff

Florida’s JaJuan Seider is expected to join the Penn State staff after it was confirmed he would leave Gainesville, according to Gators beat writer Graham Hall.

Seider was a lauded running backs coach on Jim McElwain’s staff, but appeared to start weighing other options, including interviewing with the Cleveland Browns, after he was moved to tight ends coach following Dan Mullen’s appointment as the team’s new head coach.

Seider spent just one season with the Gators. Prior to that, he coached running backs at West Virginia, where he spent three seasons as a quarterback in the 90s. The coach also specializes in recruiting, which could be a big reason for his potential hire in Happy Valley.

The former Florida coach is part of a number of additions this offseason, which include tight ends coach Tyler Bowen and running backs coach David Corley.

The additions to Franklin’s staff come after three coaches went to other schools this offseason. Former wide receivers coach Josh Gattis left to take a job as Nick Saban’s co-offensive coordinator at Alabama — joining former offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead and former running backs coach Charles Huff, who both left for Mississippi State.
