Roof called it a ``real privilege'' to be part of the 2012 Nittany Lions team with first-year coach Bill O'Brien. He said in a phone interview Thursday with The Associated Press the opportunity to go to Georgia Tech only came up about two days ago.
Roof played there and also had a previous three-year stint as defensive coordinator there. He is from Georgia.
Georgia Tech has said Roof's hiring won't become official until a background check is completed, likely next week.
Secondary coach John Butler is the new Penn State defensive coordinator.
