There are reports surfacing that Bill O’Brien has finally, officially completed his coaching staff by adding Charlie Fisher as the new QB Coach.
Charlie was recently hired by Miami (OH) University as the QB coach and “Passing Game Coordinator.”
Fisher’s background includes a successful tenure as head coach at West Georgia. From 1993-97, where he guided the Braves to a 36-17 overall record.
He left that job to coach WRs at North Carolina State where he mentored NFL stand-out Torry Holt.
Fisher then spent two years at Temple as the Offensive Coordinator/QB Coach before moving to Vanderbilt. He stayed with the Commodores for 9 years, coaching RBs, then WRs as well as serving as the passing game coordinator.
As the Vanderbilt running backs coach in 2002, he mentored Kwane Doster to SEC Freshman of the Year honors.
Fisher played quarterback and wide receiver from 1977-80 at Springfield (Mass.) College. He also lettered as a shortstop in baseball.
The timing of this hire is crucial, as Penn State is set to host several elite QBs at their Junior Day this Saturday and those players can now look forward to meeting their prospective position coach. This also means that O’Brien will likely call the plays, a craft he has spent the last few years perfecting with the New England Patriots.
