Bill O’Brien looks to get new era started in right direction
He has been asked some of the same questions since taking over the job of head coach at Penn State, but Bill O’Brien’s message remains the same. This may be a new era of Penn State football but he will not forget the traditions that have helped the program be built over the years in the wake of severe NCAA sanctions.
“I’m very respectful of the traditions here,” O’Brien said as he addressed the media Thursday, discussing the recent news of some uniform alterations for the upcoming season. “But it’s a new era of Penn State football in many ways… I want people to recognize the fact that these kids that are special, competitive kids that care about education, that care about Penn State, and have gone through some tough times over the last year as a team, individually, and they’ve stuck with us. I think that says a lot about these kids, and I want people to recognize these kids.”
