Joe Moorhead is an American football coach and former player. Moorhead played football as a quarterback at Fordham from 1992 through 1995. He is currently the offensive coordinator at Penn State.[1]

Coaching career

After a short professional playing career, Moorhead began his coaching career as a graduate assistant at the University of Pittsburgh. He was hired as running backs coach at Georgetown University in 2000, eventually being elevated to quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator by 2003. In 2004, Moorhead began a five-year stint at the University of Akron, including two years as the offensive coordinator. Moorhead joined the University of Connecticut staff in 2009 as offensive coordinator. The Huskies won a Big East Championship in 2010 and made an appearance in the Fiesta Bowl.

Moorhead was named the head football coach at Fordham University on December 16, 2011. He is believed to be the first former Patriot League player to return to the conference as a head coach. Inheriting a 1–10 team, the Rams had the second largest turnaround in FCS in 2012 (6–5). The Rams opened the 2013 season with ten consecutive wins, exceeding the best start in Fordham's illustrious football history.

On December 12, 2015, Moorhead was named the offensive coordinator for the Penn State football team.
