With dual-threat quarterback Alek Torgersen back for more in 2015, along with a healthy and reloaded supporting cast, Penn football’s offense could once again be among the Ivy League’s best.
After finishing sixth in the Ancient Eight in points per game in 2014, Torgersen and the Penn offense will enter their first season under the direction of Offensive Coordinator John Reagan, who spent the last four years in the same role at Kansas (2014) and Rice (2011-2013).
Reagan, a former three-year starter on the offensive line at Syracuse who has coached the college game since 1994, is seeking a quick turnaround for an offense that was young last season but enters 2015 with experience and poise.
Reagan and Torgersen did not wait long to get to work, spending time together throughout the spring and part of the summer.
