Penn State Loses Analyst, Gets Another

James Franklin and Penn State take on Ohio State in a top ten matchup.

Penn State has lost and added an off-field analyst.

Daniel Gallen of Lions247 reported that former PSU player Calvin Lowry has left the program after one season but has added a familiar face.

Sean Fitz of Blue-White Illustrated first reported that it’s Mark Dupuis, who was with Penn State as an offensive graduate assistant for three seasons before spending the last four at Old Dominion.

At ODU, Dupuis was the receivers coach, and his boss was former Penn State OC Ricky Rahne, who left Happy Valley after the 2019 season to become Old Dominions head coach.

Per Dupuis’ biography on Old Dominion’s website, he was the first person Rahne hired to his staff. Dupuis is also connected to another former Penn State offensive coordinator in Rahne’s predecessor, Joe Moorhead. When Moorhead was the head coach at Fordham, Dupuis was the receivers coach for four seasons. Dupuis graduated from UConn in 2011 and began his coaching career at Bates College the next year.

These aren’t the only staff-related transactions that have taken place this week at Penn State.

On Monday night, Matt Zenitz of 247Sports reported that Penn State was on the brink of hiring Justin Lustig to succeed Stacy Collins as special teams coordinator.

Lustig had been with Vandy since the 2021 season. Along with being the special teams coordinator, was also the team’s tight ends coach and associate head coach. In 2018, while Lustig was an assistant at Syracuse, he was nominated for the Broyles Award, presented annually to the nation’s top assistant coach. At Syracuse, Lustig coached special teams, running backs and outside receivers at various points throughout his four-year tenure. Lustig is a PA guy from Erie who played at Cathedral Prep.
