After interviewing with the Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles, Bill O'Brien has reportedly decided to stay at Penn State. The first-year head coach guided the Nittany Lions to an 8-4 record and won the Big Ten Coach of the Year award despite dealing with harsh NCAA sanctions stemming from the Jerry Sandusky scandal. The former New England Patriots offensive coordinator took the job as Joe Paterno's successor with the understanding that the Sandusky situation was a criminal matter, not an NCAA concern. O'Brien's contract includes a significant buyout of $9.2 million. However, it is unknown if it applies to NFL opportunities.
