Penn State Coaching Search: Penn State Tells Staff 'No Decision Has Been Made,' According To Report

Numerous reports continue to say that New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O'Brien has agreed replace Joe Paterno and become Penn State's next head coach. Sara Ganim of the Harrisburg Patriot-News, however, just tweeted a potential bombshell.

Source just told me that as of 4pm #PSU told current coaching staff that no decision has been made.

Meanwhile, at this hour, members of the coaching staff are leaving the Lasch Football Building on campus after meeting with acting athletic director David Joyner. Most are declining comment, but as Nate Mink of StateCollege.com reports quarterbacks coach and co-offensive coordinator Jay Paterno said he is still employed by Penn State.

Needless to say, this story may have taken another bizarre turn.

For the latest on the Penn State coaching search, stay tuned to SB Nation Pittsburgh.
