Some bad information given to Bill O’Brien, Head coach of Penn State could be part of the reason O’Brien is being wooed by the Philadelphia Eagles. Bill O’Brien in his first year at Penn State took over a team that was in flux and led them to a successful 2012 season. However, O’Brien could be eyeing a return to the NFL as soon as 2013, he’s a hot coaching candidate and some bad information given to him before he took the Penn State job could quicken the process. O’Brien was told that the Sandusky scandal was a criminal violation and the school football program wasn’t going to be penalized. Significant penalties against Penn State and its football program included a $60 million fine and a four-year postseason ban, in the wake of the child sexual abuse scandal involving the former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky. O’Brien thought he wouldn’t have to work under a restricted program, thus taking the job. However, with NFL teams calling O’Brien is the one calling the shots. All indications are O’Brien is on a few teams short list and could be interviewing as soon as the NFL season is over according to Greg Rosenthal of NFL.com.   var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
