Penn State Acting Athletic Director Dave Joyner announced Monday the members of the search committee in charge of finding the next head football coach of the Nittany Lions.
Joyner was appointed by Penn State President Rodney Erickson to head the six-person committee, which will meet this week.
The five other members of the committee include: Russ Rose, head coach of the Penn State's women's volleyball team; Linda Caldwell, Penn State faculty athletics representative; Charmelle Green, Penn State associate athletic director and senior woman administrator; Ira Lubert, chairman and co-founder of Independence Capital Partners and Lubert-Adler Partners; and John Nichols, emeritus professor in the College of Communications and chair of the Coalition on Intercollegiate Athletics.
Rose is in his 33rd season as head coach of the Nittany Lions women’s volleyball team and has coached five national championships.
Caldwell is a professor in the department of recreation, parks and tourism management with a research interest in youth development through leisure, leisure and health and prevention.
Before being named associate athletic director and senior woman administrator by former Penn State Athletic Director Tim Curley in July, Green was most recently the senior assistant athletic director for student-athlete welfare and development at Notre Dame.
