What they’re saying about Joe Moorhead’s move from Penn State to Mississippi State

Joe Moorhead is moving to Mississippi State, and Twitter reacted accordingly.

The former Nittany Lion play-caller — who brought a Big Ten-title winning scheme to Happy Valley — leaves on seemingly good terms. Everyone from James Franklin to now-former players expressed their appreciation and wished Moorhead luck.

Meanwhile, Mississippi State fans are excited. Really, really excited.

Let’s check out the reaction to Moorhead’s move...

Penn State head coach James Franklin thanked Moorhead for his two seasons at Penn State.

It looks like down in Mississippi, the Bulldogs are rolling with the Moorhead and the Saturday Night Live “Need more cowbell” skit play on words. Pretty clever.

Penn State backup quarterback Tommy Stevens expressed his gratitude to the offensive coordinator.

So did Nittany Lion wideout Juwan Johnson and a few others.

Meanwhile, Bulldogs quarterback Nick Fitzgerald — a talented signal-caller — is pumped about the hire.

And from a national perspective, Mississippi State’s decision to bring in Moorhead was met with applause.
