Penn State Hires Former NFL Offensive Coordinator Dowell Loggains As Offensive Analyst

Penn State football has added yet another assistant coach to its staff this week.

The Nittany Lions have hired former New York Jets offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains as offensive analyst, a spokesperson for the team confirmed Friday morning. Loggains now takes over the role formerly held by Ty Howle, who was promoted to tight ends coach earlier this month.

Loggains has no experience coaching college football, but has worked as a coach in the NFL in an official capacity since 2008. After bouncing around as a scout for multiple seasons, Loggains spent two seasons as the Tennessee Titans offensive quality control coordinator. He eventually became the Titans’ offensive coordinator during the 2012 and 2013 seasons.

The Abilene, Texas native also had stops as an offensive coach with the Cleveland Browns, Chicago Bears, and Miami Dolphins. Most recently, Loggains served as the Jets’ offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for two seasons. He was fired on January 3 after a few less-than-stellar campaigns, including a 2020 season in which New York averaged a league-worst 279.9 yards per game.

Loggains played his college football at Arkansas and was a walk-on quarterback for the Razorbacks from 2001 to 2005.

The Nittany Lions also added former Purdue coach Anthony Poindexter to their staff as co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach this week.
