FOS TV: Lion OC John Donovan

Get to know Penn State's first-year offensive coordinator from our recent video interview. He touches on adjusting to new personnel, summer workouts, leadership and much more.

In his first spring with the Penn State football team, new offensive coordinator John Donovan spent a lot of time getting to know his players and teaching them a new system.

It helped, he said, that a good foundation had been set before he arrived.

"They've been well-coached," Donovan said, referring to the work done by former head coach Bill O'Brien and his staff.

But Donovan and new head man James Frankin have installed their own offensive system. And while it is similar to the pro-style approach O'Brien favored, there are differences.

We caught up with Donovan recently and asked how the spring went. He covered everything from the aforementioned changes to using the Wildcat formation to summer workouts to leadership and more.

Check it out above.
