(Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty Images)Penn State is struggling against Michigan on Saturday, and fans are starting to get frustrated with how the team has performed in big games this season. One such fan is former Nittany Lion running back Larry Johnson.Johnson, who starred at Penn State from 1999-2002 and later had a great NFL career, took to Twitter with some interesting thoughts on the team’s coaching staff. It looks like he wants to see changes.Specifically, Johnson wants to see some position coaches fired. He isn’t saying which ones – but he is saying that he’s seeing the same issues each of the past three years.Here’s what Johnson, whose father was once a position coach at Penn State, had to say:? Amateur hour!— Larry Johnson (@2LarryJohnson7) November 3, 2018To be honest. These are the games that show you what position coach needs to be fired.— Larry Johnson (@2LarryJohnson7) November 3, 2018No. Just the ones getting exposed for the 3rd year straight.— Larry Johnson (@2LarryJohnson7) November 3, 2018To be clear, it doesn’t look like Johnson is advocating that James Franklin is the issue. He thinks some tweaks need to be made to the staff.Johnson, after a stellar senior season at Penn State, wound up going No. 27 overall to the Kansas City Chiefs. He played for the Chiefs for seven seniors – two of which were all-timers. He later played for the Bengals, Redskins and Dolphins as well.
