07:36 AM ET 01.07 | Well, this didn't take long. Eight coaches with ties to the Penn State program have left in the wake of Bill O'Brien's departure for the NFL's Houston Texans, a university spokesman confirmed Monday. Only three coaches, including interim head coach Larry Johnson, remain on the Nittany Lions' staff. Assistant coaches John Butler, Stan Hixon, Charles London and Anthony Midget have submitted their resignations, effective Monday, as did Jim Bernhardt, special assistant to the head coach. Strength coach Craig Fitzgerald also resigned, as did his assistants, Dwight Galt IV and Sean Hayes. At least six of those who resigned are heading to the Texans, sources told ESPN.com's Tania Ganguli. The only two that could not be confirmed were Galt and Hayes.

They'd better get this coaching situation resolved ASAP.

Best thing the AD for PSU can do is get rid of everybody and find a Headcoach who can start from scratch and bring in all new personnell starting with the janitor all the way thru the O-D Coordinators.

And this is different from any other university (or NFL team) how?

Most college coaches have year-to-year contracts, and the new man in town usually has guys he wants to be with him from other places, and not use the holdover assistants.

Maryland will own PSU for the next few years!

HB, I see you subscribe to my granddad's philosophy. "To get rid of all the rats, you have to burn the entire barn to the ground."

I don't keep tabs on the assistant coaches at Penn State. Were these guys all O'Brien hires? I know that the interim HC, Johnson is a long time Penn State assistant. My guess is the new guy will keep Johnson and maybe one of the other two remaining assistants to help secure some portion of this year's recruiting class.

The siblings/first cousins jokes are staler than dinosaur poop and reflect poorly on those telling them... And, yes, pedophilia is much worse - absolutely NOT funny. You're better than that.

The "rapist QB" and "cover-up/conspiracy" jokes are worn out as well...but they will be repeated every time Jameis takes the field, from now on.

it will only stop when humans stop posting and cyborgs take over the interwebs completely, not just the mods....

Those shots are misdirected by the uninformed. They should be aimed at eastern Tennesse and West Virginny.
