voting, the coach’s agent was telling ESPN on Tuesday that Bill O’Brien wasn’t taking another job.
“(O’Brien) is staying, and we’ve had no conversations with anyone else,” Joe Linta said. “In fact, he’s leaving at 6 in the morning tomorrow to go out on the recruiting trail.”
Linta added that recent talk about how much his client would have to pay in order to buy out the remaining eight years of his contract at Penn State were “irrelevant.” Those rumors started recently when Patriot-News columnist David Jones asked O’Brien whether he was staying. The coach didn’t confirm that he was.
