Penn State Football: Bill O'Brien Wants To Stay Forever

New Penn State football coach Bill O'Brien says he'd like to finish his career at Penn State.

"I want this to be my last stop," O’Brien told a pair of reporters in Washington D.C. last week during the Coaches Caravan. "It’s a great place, and I love being here. And we haven’t played a game yet, and I understand that. It’s the type of place I’ve pictured myself being a head coach."

That's certainly not the wrong thing to say, but O'Brien hasn't coached a game yet, so neither side can really be sure if their arrangement is going to work. Also, O'Brien is 42 years old, so his career might not be over for 25 more years or so. Pitt fans still stung by the duplicity of Todd "Fraud" Graham will surely roll their eyes at this. There's no indication that O'Brien is anything like Graham, of course. It's just that he's surely at a point in his career where these kinds of statements don't mean a whole lot.
