Anchor Drop, January 16, 2024: Lustig Out

The special teams/tight ends coach is going to Penn State.

NCAA Football: Syracuse at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt football’s offseason coaching staff turnover... continues. Special teams/tight ends coach Justin Lustig is reportedly headed to Penn State.

Unlike the first round of staff turnover, which saw both coordinators and Dan Jackson lead... this is one we didn’t want to lose. Vanderbilt’s special teams have been solid, and pretty much everybody agreed that Lustig was one of the best coaches on staff. Now Vanderbilt is in the market for somebody to coach special teams (and tight ends.)

The Commodores do reportedly have an offensive line coach lined up to replace AJ Blazek, though. Football Scoop reported yesterday that Vanderbilt is set to hire Kennesaw State offensive coordinator Chris Klenakis to coach its offensive line. He does have some Power 5 experience as an offensive line coach.
