Penn State Coaches Caravan registration under way

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – Building on his mission to “Dominate The State,” Penn State football coach James Franklin and several head coaches will embark on the Penn State Coaches Caravan tour in May, with stops in 17 locales. Thirteen of the 17 events will take place in Pennsylvania, including five on Penn State campuses, with additional stops in Baltimore, New Jersey, New York City and Washington, D.C.

The first set of head coaches participating in the Penn State Coaches Caravan have been confirmed, with Char Morett (field hockey), Russ Rose (women’s volleyball), Cael Sanderson (wrestling), Erica Walsh (women’s soccer) and Bob Warming (men’s soccer) all scheduled to join Franklin at selected events. Additional head coaches and football assistant coaches also will attend Coaches Caravan events and will be announced in early April. 

Penn State Coaches Caravan registration is under way for the general public at www.alumni.psu.edu/coachescaravan and www.GoPSUsports.com. As a benefit of membership, Penn State Alumni Association and Nittany Lion Club members began signing up for Coaches Caravan events March 24 with nearly 3,300 sign-ups over the past week. Advance registration is required for all events on the Penn State Coaches Caravan, which is jointly sponsored by the Penn State Alumni Association and the Nittany Lion Club.

The opening event during the first full week of the Penn State Coaches Caravan – the May 6 lunch at Penn State York – is sold out. More than 200 will be in attendance. The May 20 lunch at Williamsport’s Pennsylvania College of Technology also is approaching a sell-out, nearing 250 guests.
