Penn State Football Adds Former NFL Quarterback Charlie Frye To Coaching Staff

James Franklin’s team of analysts now boasts some more NFL experience.

The Nittany Lions have hired former NFL quarterback and coach Charlie Frye to the coaching staff.

Frye, who has five years of NFL experience, was not announced as a hire but appears on the athletic department’s staff directory. With Penn State, Frye will serve an off-field role as an offensive analyst and analytics coordinator.

The former Akron quarterback was drafted into the NFL in 2005 with the No. 67 overall pick and spent the next five years bouncing between the Cleveland Browns, Seattle Seahawks, and the then-Oakland Raiders.

After retiring from the NFL in 2010, Frye began his coaching career. He started out as a high school coach in 2012 and made his way to Central Michigan as its offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach in 2019. He got his first NFL coaching job in 2020 when the Miami Dolphins hired him as their quarterbacks coach.

With his hire, Frye becomes the second former quarterback to join the Nittany Lions in an offensive analyst role, alongside Danny O’Brien.
