Ricky Rahne will be the next head coach at Old Dominion, sources told FootballScoop on Monday.
The team will be informed of the hire on Monday afternoon, sources say. A formal announcement will come on Monday evening.
Rahne is currently the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Penn State, a job he has held since 2018. Rahne has been on James Franklin’s staff in State College since 2014, and prior to that coached quarterbacks at Vanderbilt from 2011-13.
Rahne will be the second head coach in ODU history, following founding head coach Bobby Wilder, who stepped down after 12 years with the program earlier this month.
I want to thank @RickyRahne for everything he has done for me these past few years. Not only is he a great coach, but has been a great mentor to myself and my teammates. I will miss ya coach! @ODUFootball is getting a great one! Much love✊ #WeAre pic.twitter.com/1mHvsolGdH
