New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien missed practice earlier today to interview for the vacant Penn State head coaching position. O’Brien is considered to be one of the leading candidates to become Penn State’s new head coach. Bill Belichick didn’t seem to mind in his press conference when he mentioned O’Brien would miss practice. “Collectively we’ll do all the things that we need to do,” Belichick said, meaning the rest of the offensive staff would share O’Brien’s responsibilities in his absence.
The Jacksonville Jaguars are still hoping to interview O’Brien for their head coaching vacancy.
Concerned about losing Bill O’Brien? Perhaps my article from earlier in the week discussing Josh McDaniels’ potential return to New England will put you at ease.
