Penn State defensive coordinator Brent Pry is one of a few people “getting consideration” for the head coaching vacancy at Louisiana-Lafayette, according to FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman. The Ragin’ Cajuns fired head coach Mark Hudspeth after seven seasons last week.

An Altoona, Pa. native, Pry was an assistant at Louisiana-Lafayette for five seasons between 2002-2006. He has been an assistant at Penn State for all four of James Franklin’s seasons in Happy Valley. Pry started as the Nittany Lions’ linebackers coach and was promoted to defensive coordinator in 2016 after Bob Shoop left for Tennessee.
If Pry did leave Penn State, it would be another big blow to Franklin’s staff. Last week, offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead took the head coaching job at Mississippi State and Nittany Lions running backs coach/special teams coordinator Charles Huff also joined Moorhead’s staff in Starkville.
Penn State promoted quarterbacks coach Ricky Rahne to offensive coordinator on Friday.
