Penn State running backs coach Ju’Juan Seider is staying at Penn State according to On3.com. Seider was in the running to be the co-offensive coordinator for Florida State under Mike Norvell.

Sieder, 44 has been with Penn State since 2018 and has had a key role in developing now Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders who was selected in the second round of the 2019 NFL draft. He is a native of Belle Glade, Florida, and played at nearby Florida A and M. University for one season after graduating from West Virginia.

Seider would like to be to improve the Lions running game which was ranked 12th in the Big Ten in 2012. Seider will lead a running back room that will feature new commits Nicholas Singleton and Kaytron Allen. Penn State’s leading returning rusher is sophomore Keyvone Lee, who rushed for 530 yards and two touchdowns while averaging almost five yards a carry.

Sieder was very instrumental in the recruiting trail and had a part in recruiting Singleton and Allen, and will have a role in developing them into future stars beginning in the 2022 season.
