A Penn State letterman, he was a member of Joe Paterno's coaching staff from 1979 through 2011, serving as defensive coordinator for the final 12 seasons. His final four games with the NIttany Lions were as interim head coach. He was named the AP Defensive Coordinator of the Year in 2005 for his work on Penn State's Big Ten and Orange Bowl championship season.
He spent the 2014 season as West Virginia's defensive line coach before moving to California to serve as UCLA's defensive coordinator the past three years under Jim Mora Jr. Scrap was left off of new Bruins head coach Chip Kelly's staff upon taking over in December. This will be his first coaching job in the NFL.
