Penn State football history question.

I know that technically every assistant coach at Penn State has no special title.  Bradley and McQueary are just titled "assistant coach." Having said that, when JoePa was an assistant coach from 1950 to 1965, did he have an area of focus similar to Bradley as defensive coordinator or McQueary as WR coach, or was it just a time period where Rip called all of the shots and the assistants were yes men and coached linebackers one minute and fullbacks the next?

Compounding my confusion, I know from 1954 to 1964 the NCAA enforced "single-platoon" football where players had to play on both sides of the field.  I imagine an offensive lineman would also be a defensive lineman in that situation.  Would you have an OL/DL coach, RB/LB coach, and a WR/DB coach or would you just have an offensive coach and a defensive coach?
