Penn State co-defensive coordinator and safeties coach Anthony Poindexter could be leaving State College to be the head coach at alma mater, according to ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg.

Rittenberg tweeted Sunday night that UVA is expected to meet with Poindexter in Las Vegas to discuss the head coaching job which has been open since Bronco Mendenhall’s sudden resignation last week. Poindexter is in Vegas for the College Football Hall of Fame awards dinner scheduled for Dec. 7. Poindexter was part of the Hall of Fame’s 2020 class that didn’t receive a proper honor due to COVID-19.

Poindexter already has his legacy in Charlottesville as a player. He was an All-American at UVA and has his No. 3 retired.

Poindexter just finished his first regular season with Penn State. Should he become a head coach, he’d be the fifth former James Franklin assistant running a Division I program.
