Bill O’Brien will be a feature subject on the next HBO Real Sports; which debuts Tuesday, May 21st.
After nearly 20 years in college and pro football, Bill O’Brien finally attained the head coaching job he coveted. Prior to the 2012 season, the 43-year-old Bill O’Brien took over a Penn State University program devastated by the child sex abuse scandal involving former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.
My favorite part of Big Ten media day last summer was when I asked Penn State coach Bill O’Brien for further information about the likely transfer of Silas Redd from Penn State to USC. O’Brien was at the podium and just said “no.”
That’s it. “No.”
That’s all he said. This exchange was just awesomesauce. And it even got described in the Chicago Tribune.
