The Nittany Lions could be losing both of their coordinators.

Another Penn State coordinator appears to be in line for a head coaching job.

Nittany Lions' offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead left earlier this month for the Mississippi State job.

Now, PSU defensive coordinator Brent Pry has reportedly emerged as the "favorite" for the Louisiana-Lafayette job.

From Sports Illustrated:

Penn State defensive coordinator Brent Pry has emerged as the favorite in Louisiana-Lafayette’s search for a new head coach, a source told SI. One of the challenges for the ULL job, as it is for some Group of Five head coaching searches, is managing the economics of trying to hire away a coordinator from a top FBS program where that candidate probably could make considerably more at his current job.

Pry seems like a natural fit for the job, as he was an assistant coach at UL-Lafayette from 2002-06.
