Penn State Football: O'Brien Tells Atlanta Radio Station He Plans on Staying in Happy Valley
Like any college football program, success often comes with the fear of losing a head coach. While Penn State's Bill O'Brien has never expressed interest in moving on after his first year in Happy Valley, some ambiguous answers to questions about his future have led some to speculate his time in State College may not be long.
O'Brien, in one of his first interviews following the season on Atlanta's 790 The Zone, put the conversation to rest for now when asked Tuesday morning about openings on both the college and professional level.
"I plan on being the head football coach at Penn State," said O'Brien, under contract through 2020. "That's my plan, and that's what I intend to do."
The Nittany Lions finished 8-4 in O'Brien's first year. It was the highest win total ever for a first-year coach at Penn State.
