PSU loses offensive analyst, former NFL coordinator Loggains to Arkansas: report

Dowell Loggains, a former NFL offensive coordinator, came to Penn State as an offensive analyst earlier this year. That added even more offensive brainpower to a staff led by new coordinator Mike Yurcich.

But Loggains’ tenure with the Nittany Lions didn’t last long, as he was hired Monday to be the tight ends coach for Arkansas, his alma mater. Multiple outlets reported the move Monday evening.

This is from the Football Scoop story on Loggains:

An Arkansas native who graduated from high school in Abilene, Texas, and then played for the Razorbacks in the late 1990s and early 2000s, Loggains most recently has been an senior offensive analyst on James Franklin’s Penn State staff.

However, Loggains has been an offensive coordinator for four different NFL franchises – first with the Tennessee Titans under Mike Munchak and additionally for the Chicago Bears, Miami Dolphins and a two-year stint running the offense for the New York Jets in 2019-20.

Loggains got his first opportunity to be an NFL offensive coordinator in 2012 with the Titans (2012-13). He later filled that role with the Bears (2016-17), Dolphins (2018) and Jets (2019-20).
