Joe Moorhead is still collecting accolades for what he did for Penn State’s offense in 2016.
Moorhead revitalized the Nittany Lions’ attack and helped the team win a Big Ten title in his first season. He was named 247Sports’ Offensive Coordinator of the Year for the 2016 season Wednesday.

In his first season on James Franklin’s staff, Moorhead implemented an exhilarating, no-huddle attack. Penn State was 21st in the nation in scoring offense with 37.6 points per game and racked up 432.6 yards per game.
Moorhead, a former head coach at FCS program Fordham, was linked to some head coaching vacancies this offseason, but he will be back for Year 2 at Penn State in the fall. Joining him will be quarterback Trace McSorley, running back Saquon Barkley and an offense that should be one of the best in the nation.
