Notable wide receivers coached by Marques Hagans

Penn State has found their new wide receivers coach and he comes from Charlottesville, Virginia in the form of Marques Hagans. He has been coaching since 2011 after his NFL career ended. Hagans spent his entire coaching career with Virginia, until now.

Hagans hasn’t coached many NFL talents but he has coached 10 of the top 15 receivers in Virginia Football history. Some notable ones will be listed below and while they aren’t the most widely recognized names, they are big for that program.

Virginia saw a bit of a renaissance becoming more pass-happy in recent years and without Hagans developing receivers that may not have happened. At Penn State he will look to continue what is turning into a strong program component which is the wide receiver talent, he should do just fine in that department if his past is any indicator.
