One of the giants of Penn State football, former offensive coordinator and assistant head coach Fran Ganter, will retire:

Ganter coached a number of Penn State greats, including running backs Curt Warner, D.J. Dozier, Blair Thomas, Ki-Jana Carter, Curtis Enis and Larry Johnson, all of whom were first-team All-Americans and first-round NFL Draft picks, as well as All-America kickers Chris and Matt Bahr.
I always liked Fran. He was a good person, and a good football coach who took a lot of heat he didn’t deserve.
