Dowell Loggains is headed to Happy Valley.

No, the former Jets offensive coordinator won’t be calling plays for Penn State. But he is joining head coach James Franklin’s staff as an offensive analyst, according to multiple reports.

Loggains was the Jets’ offensive coordinator the last two seasons under Adam Gase. He held the same post under Gase in Miami in 2018 and followed him to New York. The Jets ranked 31st in points in 2019 and 32nd in 2020 under Loggains and Gase’s guidance.

Loggains played his college football at Arkansas. This will be his first coaching stint at the college level. Loggains got his coaching start with the Titans in 2008, serving as an offensive quality control coach before working his way up to quarterbacks coach and then offensive coordinator.

After leaving Tennessee, Loggains served as the Browns and Bears quarterbacks coach. He was later promoted to Chicago’s offensive coordinator once Gase left to become the Dolphins’ head coach.
