Assistant Head Coach / Wide Receivers Coach

Stan Hixon is in his second year as Penn State's assistant head coach and wide receivers coach. He has been instrumental in the development of junior Allen Robinson, who broke the Penn State record for season receptions (77) and became the second Nittany Lion to eclipse 1,000 receiving yards in a season (1,013) in 2012. Robinson, who made 11 touchdown catches, was selected the 2012 Big Ten Richter-Howard Receiver of the Year. In his 33rd year in coaching, Hixon served as the wide receivers coach for the Buffalo Bills in 2010-11 and for the Washington Redskins from 2004-09. Stevie Johnson, Santana Moss and Antwaan Randle-El are among the NFL players Hixon has helped develop. From Lakeland, Fla., Hixon served as associate head coach/wide receivers coach at LSU from 2000-03, helping the Tigers win the 2003 BCS National Championship.


He coached three first-team All-SEC receivers, including Josh Reed, the 2001 Biletnikoff Award winner, who made 94 catches for an SEC-record 1,740 yards that year. Hixon also helped develop Michael Clayton, whose 21 career touchdown catches broke the LSU record. Hixon coached the wide receivers at Georgia Tech from 1995-99, where he worked with Bill O'Brien, as they helped the Yellow Jackets capture the 1998 Atlantic Coast Conference title. He also has coached at Wake Forest (1993-94), South Carolina (1989-92), Appalachian State (1983-88), and Morehead State (1980-82). Hixon is a 1979 graduate of Iowa State, where he played wide receiver, and he earned a master's degree from Morehead State.
