Following up on reports from Friday, Penn State’s Bill O’Brien has officially hung a “No Vacancy” sign on his maiden collegiate coaching staff.

Unless Greg Schiano comes a courtin’, of course.

In a press release, the Nittany Lions confirmed Saturday evening that it has hired Charlie Fisher as its new quarterbacks coach.  In 2011, Fisher served as the pass-game coordinator/QBs coach at Miami of Ohio.

“With the hiring of Charlie Fisher as quarterbacks coach, we have completed the Penn State football coaching staff,” O’Brien stated. “This is a staff made up of men who care about the mission of Penn State University and being successful on and off the field.  It is also a staff of winners, with five staff members that have been a part of national championship teams as assistant coaches.

“This is a staff that has won many games; some while being a part of the same staff, and is a staff comprised of former head coaches, coordinators and tremendous recruiting experience.”

Prior to his time with the MAC Miami, Fisher spent nine seasons as an offensive assistant at Vanderbilt.

    Easy to replace a facilitator of “man on boy” horseplay in the shower in the teams locker room. Don’t let that sh!t happen. Of course PSU folks only want championships. if he wins 10 +games a season they could give a rat’s what goes on in the showers. Coach O’Brien > Joe

    Yea, The coaches that replaced Woody Hayes, Bear Bryant, John McVay, Vince Dooley, Pat Dye, Bo Schembechler, Ara Parseghian, etc, most had limited to no success. Going to be very tough, especially if they get sanctions.

    Sure it does JoPa400. Earlier comment said it would be tough to replace a legend. I said it wont be hard if you don’t allow men to bring boys to your locker room for showers and sodomy. If Coach O’Brien abstains from this practice he will be better than the worthless troll he is replacing. Plus, Sandusky’s pedophilia was ignored for years to ensure the program rolled on at PSU. My comment was relevant. Obviously you were hurt by learning of the atrocities that went down at PSU. You must have been even more devastated to lean that your beloved coach did the bare minimum to protect young boys from a monster. Never knew my mom so can’t respond to that. Died giving birth to me and my twin sister who is also dead. My mother was run over by a drunk driver Harrisburg in 71. My sister lived for 3 weeks after being 6 weeks premature. Take a shot at my old man next time. That cat skipped out when I was 1. But I don’t think he would allow boys to be molested. I’m sure of that.

    At least now things come to light, your a miserable piece of a crap that thinks the world owes you everything because you had a terrible homelife. Get over youself and realize everyone has their problems, and blaming others is not the answer. Their is a villian in all this (if he is convicted) but its wasn’t Joe. Only in this day age is doing the right thing the wrong thing. What have YOU done to help these victims? Hypocrite ( sorry about the plan B)

    You’re funny Mr 400! Not my responsibility to help. But if I was the manager of the PSU “Bath House” I wouldn’t have allowed children to be in there let alone shower. Joe ran the place and didn’t know showering was happening between man & child? Recipe for disaster. However silence worked long enough to get the record. What do I believe the world owes me? Please tell me what i’ve missed out on? Because if I’m due a check I want my money!! BTW…quit being so angry.
