Mike McQueary Replaced By Bill Kavanaugh As Penn State Recruiting Coordinator

With Mike McQueary no longer an active part of the Penn State football program, the Nittany Lions have given graduate assistant Bill Kavanaugh the former wide receiver coach's duties, including filling in as recruiting coordinator.

Talking about recruiting feels trivial and insulting in light of what Jerry Sandusky allegedly did, but many, many people base their livelihoods around Penn State football. The show must go on, and somebody's got to be in charge of ensuring future teams have players. That's just the way it is.

Kavanaugh has been one of McQueary's two recruiting assistants for the past year. Recruits have described him as positive and energetic. That could come in handy in catastrophic times.
