Golden served as linebackers coach under Joe Paterno in 2000 and went to Penn State so he does have ties to the program. He has gone 22-15 as the Hurricanes head man and the team’s record improved every year despite looming sanctions.
So far this is an early report and we will bring you the update if/when it becomes official.
