Offensive Line Coach

Mac McWhorter is in his second season as the Nittany Lions' offensive line coach. In 2012, McWhorter developed a unit that was instrumental in Penn State leading the Big Ten in total offense (437.0 ypg) and ranked second in scoring (32.6 ppg) in conference games. Two of McWhorter's linemen, Matt Stankiewitch and John Urschel, earned 2012 first-team All-Big Ten honors and Stankiewitch was among six finalists for the Rimington Trophy. McWhorter served as Texas associate head coach and offensive line coach from 2005-10. He joined the Longhorns' staff as tackles and tight ends coach in 2002 and played a large role in helping Texas capture the 2005 BCS National Championship and play in the 2009 BCS title game.


During the Longhorns' title season, McWhorter's offensive line was vital in Texas setting an NCAA record with 652 points and a school record with 6,657 yards, finishing No. 2 in the nation in rushing (274.9 ypg). A native of Atlanta, McWhorter was selected the 2008 Assistant Coach of the Year by the American Football Coaches Association. He was the assistant head coach and offensive line coach at Georgia Tech, working with Bill O'Brien, in 2000-01. McWhorter began his career as a high school coach in Georgia and moved into the collegiate ranks at Georgia Tech from 1980-86. He was head coach at West Georgia in 1989 and also has been an assistant coach at Alabama (1987-88), Duke (1990), Georgia (1991-95), Clemson (1996-98) and Memphis (1999). In his 33rd season as a college coach, McWhorter was an All-SEC lineman at Georgia under coach Vince Dooley, graduating in 1974.
