STATE COLLEGE, Pa. -- Penn State quarterbacks coach Charlie Fisher and linebackers coach Ron Vanderlinden have resigned.

Coach Bill O'Brien announced the moves on Tuesday. Vanderlinden was a holdover from former coach Joe Paterno's staff and was the Nittany Lions' linebackers coach since 2001. Fisher was the quarterbacks coach the past two seasons.

O'Brien says he will begin an immediate search to fill the two positions.

Penn State defeated No. 14 Wisconsin last Saturday to finish the season with a 7-5 mark.
