After returning to Happy Valley as an assistant in 2001 for her college coach Robin Petrini, Jen McIntyre is entering her third year as associate head coach and recruiting coordinator and her 12th season overall on staff. In addition to her extensive duties identifying Penn State's next great talents, McIntyre also works with the outfield defense as well as with the Nittany Lion hitters. Her ability to break down the mechanics has allowed Penn State to improve exponentially in each area.
McIntyre has played a pivotal role in the Nittany Lions' success bringing in fantastic talent from all over the country, while honing the play of student-athletes once they are in Happy Valley.
Prior to returning to her alma mater, McIntyre spent the 2000 and 2001 season at Big Ten foe Indiana as the second assistant coach. During her time in Bloomington, three players were named to the All-Big Ten team.
"It is great to have Jen at Penn State," said Petrini. "Not only because she is a Penn Stater, but also because of her knowledge of the University and all it has to offer. She is a dynamic recruiter and an outstanding teacher on the field. Jen also has a tremendous rapport with our players and keeps a great pulse on the team and its needs."
In May 2001, McIntyre earned her master's degree in kinesiology/sports management and athletic administration at Indiana.
McIntyre lives in State College.
