Patriots OC Bill O’Brien Reportedly Close to Taking the Penn State Job

Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien is interviewing with Penn State for its head-coaching job, league sources said Wednesday, and a deal is possible soon. O’Brien has been a top candidate for the job, and he’s interested in it.

Negotiations haven’t yet begun, but the potential to strike a deal is very real. The Jacksonville Jaguars hope to interview O’Brien for their head-coaching job this weekend, with the Patriots on a playoff bye, but that seems unlikely at this point.

O’Brien’s departure could pave the way for Rams offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels to return to working with Tom Brady in New England, where the coach began his NFL career.
