STATE COLLEGE, PA. (AP) - Penn State is getting advice from former Vanderbilt and South Carolina coach Eddie Fogler on the search for Ed DeChellis’ replacement.

DeChellis resigned this week after eight seasons as Penn State’s coach to take the same job at Navy.

Team spokesman Brian Siegrist said Wednesday that Fogler was hired to assist athletic director Tim Curley. Fogler has also helped with past coaching searches at Georgia Tech and Auburn.

Curley said this week that DeChellis’ resignation caught him by surprise, coming two months after the Nittany Lions secured their first NCAA tournament bid in a decade. He also said there is no timetable for a hire, though he hopes to move quickly.
