If #NFL teams call, will Penn St. HC Bill O'Brien pick up the phone?
It seems rather likely that O’Brien will stay with the school for years to come, but with so many head-coaching jobs expected to open up next week in the NFL, don't rule out some teams from trying to contact the veteran coach.
It’s believed, according to multiple sources, that some teams were doing research on O’Brien’s background and contractual situation, which includes a buyout of over $9 million and a total package of nearly $20 million. O'Brien is signed through 2020.
This situation may go nowhere, especially based on the buyout and how much money he'll earn over the length of the contract. However, with the dearth of quality head-coaching candidates available, it wouldn't be surprising if some teams showed interest in O'Brien over the next week or so.
