Obvious Answer is Obvious: BOB Staying Put

Mike Pettigano

Bill O'Brien told an Atlanta radio station that he intends to continue coaching at Penn State.

The rumors have been swirling for weeks now. With Bill O'Brien's success at Penn State in his first year, would he bolt to the NFL? Would he take the Tennessee or Arkansas or Auburn or any other of the plethora of college head coaching jobs that have become available? Would he start a coup and overthrow Mark Emmert as head of the NCAA?

It turns out none of those options will be the case.

"I plan on being the head football coach at Penn State. That's my plan, and that's what I intend to do."

-Bill O'Brien, Tuesday morning on "The Zone", 790 AM Atlanta

Darren Rovell seems to have confirmed the report after speaking with Bill O'Brien's agent.

O'Brien's contract runs through 2020 after being extended when the sanctions were handed down by the NCAA in July. He went 8-4 in his first season here at Penn State.

So enjoy the next 361 days, Penn State fans, until we have to deal with all of these rumors again.
