College football fans reacted to Penn State’s coaching change Sunday after their nine-point loss to Michigan Saturday. Penn State fans were upset with the loss at home to another Top Ten opponent. Head coach James Franklin is 1-9 against Top Ten teams as the head coach of Penn State.
Many fans feel like the program should look to part ways with Franklin. Penn State also had a major advantage Saturday, as Michigan was without head coach Jim Harbaugh on the sideline after the Big Ten banned him from being on the sideline for the remainder of his regular season.
Penn State announced one change for the program. According to Brett McMurphy with Action Network, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Mike Yurcich has been fired after being with the program for three seasons.

College football fans react to the coaching change
Penn State’s offense could only muster 15 points in the loss to Michigan. Penn State quarterback Drew Allar was 10/22 passing for 70 yards and one touchdown in the loss. Yurcich probably deserved to be fired, but many fans think that move isn’t enough at this point.

That’s simply ridiculous. I’m not a fan of the team, but he is not the problem.
