New Penn State offensive line coach Herb Hand is one of the more active college coaches on Twitter and Thursday he quoted a tweet of his daughter that included a photo of her wearing a Nittany Lions jersey.

A Penn State student lightheartedly responded by asking Hand for his daughter’s phone number. Hand’s response was fantastic as he shot that idea down like any protective father would.

The student, Christopher Lorah, backed off a bit by saying he didn’t like his chances. Hand, again, had a perfect, quick-witted response by linking to a great Dumb and Dumber clip.

Lorah, not to be outwitted, looked at the positive side of things, and Hand sympathized with the young man’s diligence.

Hand made sure that Lorah knew the exchange was all in good fun with a direct message later that night.

He has only been a part of Penn State's staff for a few weeks, but Hand is already a fan favorite in Happy Valley.
