      “Looking at Donovan’s resume there’s a reason his name has never been brought up in connection with the position. He was let go after two years as the Penn State offensive coordinator after following head coach James Franklin from Vanderbilt to PSU and taking heavy fire from the fanbase for what they viewed as lackluster play calling. Donovan was succeeded by Joe Moorhead who helped turn around the offense and who ironically is interviewing today for the Oregon offensive coordinator position.”

      “There is of course a chance that the Husky offense is able to thrive under Donovan but this hire did not check any of the boxes that most fans wanted”

      “He’s also someone with 0 west coast ties and no history of being an ace recruiter.”


      And from the Seattle Times:

      “Donovan was fired after two seasons as Penn State’s offensive coordinator and tight ends coach in 2015. That season, the Nittany Lions finished 126th out of 128 teams nationally in third down conversion percentage (27.57%), 106th in rushing offense (134.15 yards per game), 105th in total offense (348.6 yards per game), 103rd in completion percentage (53.2%), 100th in scoring offense (23.2 points per game) and 99th in red zone touchdown percentage (54.55%).”
