FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman is reporting that former Penn State offensive line coach Matt Limegrover has a new job.
Limegrover will be the new offensive line coach at Arkansas State, which recently hired former Tennessee coach Butch Jones as its head coach.
SOURCE: Arkansas State is hiring Matt Limegrover as the new O-line coach. He has spent the past decade coaching O-line and working as a coordinator in the Big Ten… He was at Minnesota (OC/OL) and Penn State (OL). He and Butch Jones coached together at Ferris State in the 90s.

The Red Wolves finished 4-7 last season, and they had very clear problems up front. They averaged just 3.6 yards per carry, which is perhaps attributable to the fact that their quarterbacks were sacked 27 times.
Penn State didn’t renew Limegrover’s contract after the 2019 season, replacing him last February with Phil Trautwein. Limegrover served as Nittany Lions offensive line coach from 2016 through 2019, helping a line that won the 2016 Big Ten Championship and participated in three New Year’s Six bowl games.
Limegrover spent the 2020 season on the Michigan staff.
