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.
