Joe Moorhead will hire Penn State assistant Charles Huff at Mississippi State, per reports

Joe Moorhead isn’t the only coach leaving State College for Starkville this week, apparently. Moorhead is set to hire Penn State assistant Charles Huff to be his co-offensive coordinator at Mississippi State, according to Chris Vannini of The Athletic.

Football Scoop also reported the news on Thursday afternoon.

Huff was an assistant with the Nittany Lions since James Franklin took the job in 2014. He served as running backs coach and special teams coordinator at Penn State. Huff also worked with Franklin at Vanderbilt in 2011 and has previous coaching stops at Maryland, Western Michigan and with the Buffalo Bills.

Huff is set to join Moorhead, took the Mississippi State head coaching job earlier in the week. Moorhead was Penn State’s offensive coordinator for the last two seasons and revolutionized the program’s offense. The Nittany Lions ranked seventh in the country in scoring during the 2017 season with 41.6 points per game.

James Franklin now has two openings to fill on his staff.
