ESPN: O’Brien to Coach Houston Texans

Posted on: 10:40 pm, December 31, 2013, by , updated on: 10:33pm, December 31, 2013


After just two seasons as Penn State’s head football coach, Bill O’Brien is leaving to take a job in the NFL.

According to ESPN, O’Brien will be the new head coach of the Houston Texans.

Penn State hired O’Brien in the wake of dismissal of long-time coach Joe Paterno, following the arrest of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky on child sex abuse charges.

Officials have not said who the Nittany Lions will target to be the university’s next head coach.

    Wasn’t Bill O’Brien the guy that was not leaving Penn State? He is not a man of his word. No integrity at all. He’s sorry he led people on, but he’s laughing all the way to the bank. Just think what my comments would be like if I were a Penn State fan. To bad he’s not reading these. Go Bucs!!!

  • Romie says:

    Now everyone can change their t-shirts to Mis-Billieve. So much for being truthful. Hire Larry Johnson as the head coach. You don’t have to look any further. He would be awesome.

  • Brian says:

    Love it!! He finally smartened up and left that train-wreck of a school known as Penn State!! Woo hoo!! Go, Texans!

  • popsinpa says:

    we don’t need Him the Texans can have himgood bye

  • Bev says:

    His heart must not have been where he led people to believe it was. Yet another person to sell the kids and the university up the river. Joepa never ran out on them. Bring back the statue, and pay tribute to the man who REALLY bled blue and white.

  • He said he would not leave and now he has. I lost all respect for him as a man and a coach. He is not reliable.

  • george says:

    Sad day at PENN STATE ! I wish you a losing season in Texas Bill !!

    • Bill Rauhuff says:

      I am sad to hear this because he was doing a great job at Penn State and it is still a great destination job. James Franklin would be a good hire. This is coming from a Tennessee Volunteer who has lived in Pennsylvania the last 5 years

      • Mr. Papageorgio says:

        It’s kind of funny how he begged the players to stay to make him look good after the Paterno debacle. But now that the players are locked in, he bails! What a coward. Good riddance, he was no good for PSU anyway. It’s a shame how PSU will be just like all the rest of the teams in the NCAA, coaches come and then go when more money comes along. Tradition is OVER at PSU. PSU needs to install a revolving door.
