In a new report this evening, it looks like the New England Patriots will not only be losing their offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien, but also their offensive assistant coach, George Godsey.

The report, which comes from ESPN Boston, says that Godsey will be following O'Brien to the Penn State Nittany Lions.

O'Brien is taking over as head coach at Penn State, but will be making all the offensive play calls on his own, as he is reportedly not naming an offensive coordinator for the team. Godsey, who is 33 years old, will be the new quarterbacks coach for the Nittany Lions.

Godsey joined the New England Patriots in February of last year. Before that he was at Central Florida as the running backs coach.
