When JoePa finally hangs it up

There is a lot of speculation about who will replace Joe Paterno when he finally does call it quits, (probably around 2024 or so). I've seen where Kirk Ferentz  of Iowa or Greg Schiano of Rutgers and even Al Golden of Temple could all be candidates. Personally, I don't think any of these fine coaches will be added to the Penn State staff when JoePa steps down. All three of these guys or whomever else they consider will have the expectation of being the head coach and as such, will want to instill his own values and likely staff members. I just don't see that happening.

I believe that the next head coach will be promoted from within and I think that man will be Tom Bradley. I think that a former Penn State player could be added to the staff, or someone else who will take the reins of the line coach that is currently done by Larry Johnson. I think that Larry Johnson will likely become the defensive coordinator for the team. 

I also believe that Galen Hall will likely step down at the same time that JoePa goes, leaving Jay Paterno to to quite possibly fill that role and another former player added to the staff. Whatever happens, it will be interesting to see the dynamic that occurs when all this shakes out, but promoting the coaches as I propose, I think, would be the smoothest transition for Penn State and still retain its performance level and philosophy.

I'm interested to hear what y'all think. (Thought I would put that southern twang on that as opposed to the Perry County version of you-uns)
