Bill O'Brien rumors: Eagles could top list of suitors

Rich Barnes-US PRESSWIRE

Many NFL teams are interested in Penn State head coach Bill O'Brien, with the Philadelphia Eagles showing the most interest.

Many NFL teams with open coaching vacancies have eyes on Penn State coach Bill O'Brien, with the Philadelphia Eagles at the top of the list. The Eagles, Cleveland Browns, and Arizona Cardinals all want to interview O'Brien. The Eagles' top choice seems to be Oregon coach Chip Kelly, but O'Brien is high on their list.

O'Brien led Penn State to an 8-4 record in his first season, as the school recovers from the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Prior to coaching the Nittany Lions, O'Brien served as an assistant with the New England Patriots for five seasons. In 2011 he was the offensive coordinator in New England.

O'Brien has maintained that he is committed to staying at Penn State, but recent reports indicated that he is strongly considering at least taking the interviews. O'Brien's contract features an eight-figure buyout, but that doesn't seem to be scaring away any NFL teams. Penn State is reportedly going to offer O'Brien a significant raise to stay with the Nittany Lions.
