Penn State running backs coach Ja’Juan Seider is not a finalist for the head coaching job at Marshall, but ironically, another former Nittany Lion running backs coach is being considered for the job.

Charles Huff, Penn State’s running backs coach and special teams coordinator from 2014-17, is one of three finalists for the Marshall job. That is according to Tom Bragg of our sister site, WVSportsNow.com.

Huff is currently Alabama’s running backs coach and associate head coach.

Seider was considered a possible candidate for the job at Marshall, where he was running backs coach and recruiting coordinator from 2010-12. He also played at West Virginia and was the Mountaineers’ running backs coach from 2013-16. He has been PSU’s running backs coach since 2018.

Huff came to Penn State from Western Michigan in 2014. He had been offensive quality control coach for James Franklin at Vanderbilt in 2011. He left Penn State in 2018 to join Joe Moorhead’s staff at Mississippi State, then went to Alabama in 2019.
