From the “where are they now” file…
Per Jeff’s blog: Timpson, sources tell me, has coached in his home state of Florida. The former Nittany Lions’ wideout played in the NFL for the Eagles, Bears and Patriots. You might he recall he got caught up in the infamous sexual harassment suit filed by former Boston Herald reporter Lisa Olson, and was fined by the NFL while playing for New England.
Timpson was a member of the two Nittany Lions teams that played for the national title in the middle part of the 80’s, pulling in 12 catches for 208 yards in 1985. If memory serves me correct, he was injured in 1986 and didn’t make it out of the first game. (Could be wrong on that and if so, please drop a line and let me know).
His 22 receptions for 342 yards led the Nittany Lions in 1988.
Per Timpson’s Wikipedia page: Timpson resides in Coral Springs, Florida. with his wife Edwena and their two children. He currently owns a sports performance place called Velocity. He most recently served as a sports analyst for 1400 FOX Sports Radio and was the head football coach first at Fort Lauderdale Christian, then at Westminster Academy.
Timpson also holds six Penn State track records and still holds the NCAA record of 33.01 in the 300 Meters.
According to Jeff’s update, a decision on the McCaskey job could come as early as Tuesday
