Penn State has parted ways with offensive line coach Matt Limegrover after four seasons, the program confirmed today.
Limegrover arrived at Penn State in 2016 after stints at Minnesota, Northern Illinois, Southern Illinois, Emporia State and Ferris State. He also served as the team’s run game coordinator the last two years.
“We appreciate all of Matt’s contributions to our program for the last 4 seasons,” said PSU head coach James Franklin via statement. “We wish Matt and his family all the best in the future.”
PSU has now confirmed that Matt Limegrover's contract was not renewed.

Limegrover’s tenure in Happy Valley ended on a high note in the Nittany Lions’ 53-39 Cotton Bowl win over Memphis. Penn State racked up 529 yards of total offense, including a whopping 396 on the ground.
Limegrover is the second major Nittany Lion assistant to leave the program in recent days. Offensive coordinator Ricky Rahne was hired as the new head coach at Old Dominion.
He was replaced by Kirk Ciarrocca, who joined the PSU staff last week after a successful run at Minnesota.
