– Bruce Feldman (@BruceFeldmanCFB) December 8, 2017  Shoop served as defensive coordinator for Penn State for two seasons (2014-2015) on James Franklin's staff before leaving for the same I work in Tennessee. In early 2017, Penn State sued Shoop, saying it owed the school nearly $ 900,000 for failing to comply with the terms of its purchase.
Shoop was never trained on the same Penn State team as Moorhead, who was named Penn State offensive coordinator in 2016, but the pair will join Starkville from the 2018 season. Moorhead also brought in Charles Huff, coordinator from Penn State's special equipment / runners teams, to their Mississippi state personnel.
Moorhead, who has a search for coaches at Fordham, took the job in Mississippi on November 28.
