Penn State Nittany Lions head coach Bill O’Brien has interviewed this week for the vacant Cleveland Browns head coaching job. He has been on the radar of the NFL for quite some time.
He has interviewed for multiple NFL head coaching jobs. Yet, despite the interest from the NFL, he is expected to stay with the Nittany Lions for at least another season.
With this move, he has withdrawn his name from future consideration for future NFL jobs during this coaching cycle. Unfortunately for the Philadelphia Eagles, they will have to go in another direction for a head coach.
O’Brien was reportedly the Eagles’ top choice. Now, the team will have to look elsewhere to find their new leader.
The Eagles recently fired longtime head coach Andy Reid.
O’Brien completed his first season as a head coach in 2012. He guided the Nittany Lions to an 8-4 mark.
The team was ineligible to play for the Big Ten Championship and a Bowl game due to NCAA sanctions. O’Brien guided the Nittany Lions to wins in their final two games of the 2012 season.
Both wins came at Beaver Stadium. First, they defeated the Indiana Hoosiers 45-22 on November 17th.
One week later, the team defeated the Wisconsin Badgers 24-21 in overtime. According to reports, O’Brien has an $18.4 million buyout.© 2007-2023 The Capital Sports Report. All Rights Reserved. This material may not be published, broadcasted, rewritten, or redistributed.
